Cygnets on the Wey

19th July 2022 – River Wey Guildford
Danni was back on his canoe on the River Wey two days after the previous visit to rescue a cygnet this time to rescue 3 cygnets. We do not know the exact reason for the situation but there was an adult swan trying to drown the cygnets. This sometimes happens if a territorial dispute occurs but nevertheless removing the cygnets from the river was the best chance for their survival. Many thanks to kayakers from the Wey Kayak Club who help Danni corral the youngsters who then brought them to the crèche at the Swan Sanctuary.
