30th May 2023 – Rickmansworth
Our rescuer Mark has been busy in Hertfordshire this month. He had a tricky rescue of cygnets at Rickmansworth Aquadrome where the babies were trapped in a wire enclosure on the water and were frantically trying to get back to the parents. Mark took a video of the rescue from his body camera which you can watch via this link. It is quite long but the successful part of the rescue is around the 10 minute mark where the cygnets are reunited with the parents.
Sadly bird flu has not left us, it is still around even though not mentioned much in the media.
He also helped out this Canada goose with a badly damaged wing in Wheathampstead which had to come in for treatment.
