Family in the Wars

Hampton Court – 19th September 2019

A swan family in the wars at Hampton Court. An adult and one of the cygnets both with fishing tackle. The adult was hooked in the neck and the cygnet had quite a collection of line attached to its back. Both birds detackled on site and returned to the river.
