Caught in the net

Brentford 4th April 2019

We were called out to this unlucky bird on the Grand Union Canal in Brentford. The net was originally over the garden but had blown over onto the canal side. Along came the swan foraging for food and got more and more entangled in the netting. Something often seen with hedgehogs but rarely with swans. We managed a successful rescue and the swan was brought back to the sanctuary for a clean up and a few days recuperation, it went back a few days later and is doing well.
