The Mute Swan was obtained on the Munchur Lake during an exceptionally severe winter by Mr. Watson in 1878. Dr. Stoliczka records that he noticed several Swans on the Runn of Cutch, but at too great a distance for it to be possible to identify them. The Mute Swan must be considered a very rare and uncertain cold weather visitant to Sind.
