Fare well in Fareham

14th July 2023 – Fareham Hampshire
Danni and his camera have been out on the water again this time to rescue a cob with a fishing hook embedded in him. The bird is in full moult at this time of year so it is just a matter of manoeuvring him into a corner where he can be picked up as he cannot fly off. As can be seen from this video which is approaching the end of the chase it requires some serious paddling. The wound was quite badly infected so the swan was brought in to the Sanctuary for treatment and antibiotics, he is expected to make a full recovery and can go back to his home.
