Feathers on the Line

5th September 2020 – Richmond Railway Station

A worried call from the staff at Richmond Railway station saw a team despatched to help with two swans wandering about on the lines just outside the station. On arrival we had to wait for the lines to be cleared of rail traffic and the electricity turned off so we could be led by a member of staff through the tunnel to the birds. One fortunately flew off on its own when it was approached but the other was picked up and taken to the local flock which is probably where they were both originally headed.
