Oil and swans do not mix

26th September 2019 – St James Park London

The heavy rain this week has flushed through a few drains and one of those comes out in St James Park so the swan family were contaminated quite badly with cooking oil. Waterlogged and dirty they were unable to go back on the water. They ended up at the Swan Sanctuary and christened our new oil spill unit. Once they are fully cleaned and waterproofed they will be able to back to their central London home.
