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.

The Swan takes the plunge after a week in our care.
So happy to see each other again.
