Swans have their babies, or cygnets, at this time of year and every year we get numerous calls to rescue families who chose a precarious journey to water.
This particular swan family was well known - a kind member of the public had been walking them from their nesting site in his garden to a local lake for years (a journey of over 3 hours over busy roads), but sadly his age had recently prevented him from helping them out. He contacted WAF and Simon was happy to help!
Simon, vet nurse Lucy, new vet Michelle and Simon's daughter and WAF's deputy CEO, Lou, rushed to the scene and quickly captured both adults and all six cygnets. Once they were all safely in the car it was only a short drive before they could be released again!
