3rd October 2019 – Barge Walk, Kingston
This swan has had a hook in its neck for around 3 weeks now but it has been like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Being part of the flock at Kingston and the line was very fine so this chap was not easy to find. Several trips to the flock had proved fruitless until he was finally spotted AND caught by our rescue team. It was obviously not causing the swan any trouble but the hook came out quite easily and no more phone calls about that particular bird. If you do see a swan with fishing tackle attached to it do ring the Swan Sanctuary with a location. We may or may not know about it already but the more information we can get, the better.
