16th November 2020 – Wellington Barracks London
Traditionally the regimental mascot is a goat or even a wolfhound but this perhaps this cygnet was hoping they would accept him instead when he landed in Wellington Barracks. It is situated on Birdcage Walk so maybe he thought it appropriate when he got stuck behind bars. The officer in charge decided to reject the application and instead called us to come and remove the young bird from his self imposed prison. Fortunately he was uninjured and was released into a flock of his own kind with a story to tell.
