🦢👏 Swan Rescue Wednesday! 🦢👏
Yesterday, a female swan missed her landing in the Valence Park lake. She ended up landing in the hedge on Valence House premises and hurt herself. She couldn’t walk anymore and damaged her wings. Managing to crawl against the railing to re-join with her mate, she got stuck between the rails and was dying of asphyxiation. Fortunately, Michèle, our Heritage Ranger managed to free her so that she was able to breathe again. Jack, one of our volunteers, monitored her and gave her seeds and water before a volunteer from the Swan Sanctuary came and collected our injured buddy. We are hoping to see her back as soon as she gets better!
