Swan Rescue

Posted by Jon in News, Wild Birds on Sunday 23/08/2009 18:48 UTC.

This beautiful swan came to us from Shipley County Park. It had a fishing hook lodged into its body.

Following a trip to the vets to have the hook removed, it is now recuperating in a pen on antibiotics and painkillers.

Update 1 September

Yesterday we released this Mute swan back where it came from. We carried it to the lake and fortunately found its partner. A crowd gathered and it was a tear jerking moment as the two were reunited with each other.

Swans mate for life, so we were really chuffed to see the two back together.
