Oil Spill in Guildford

Male on the nest

23rd April 2021 – River Wey Guildford
We were called to diesel spill near the Rowbarge pub on the River Wey in Guildford. The female who has laid eggs was badly contaminated and has been brought into the Sanctuary for decontamination, in the meantime the cob has been sitting on the nest keeping the eggs warm. We hope to get the pen back on site soon once she is waterproofed.
