Hanging about at the airport

20th October 2019 – Heathrow Airport

The airport has installed extensive netting over the river and ponds at the end of the runways at Heathrow to discourage birds and minimise the risk of a bird strike.

Unfortunately this swan either did not get the memo or was a little short sighted and so ended up on the netting with no way of taking off again.

Fortunately our rescue team could get to the bouncing bird and it was released well away from the airport.
