Look for swans
12:02pm Friday 18th October 2013 in Letters
THIS IS the time of year when cygnets (young swans) could be leaving the family brood. Often they leave of their own accord but sometimes they are encouraged by their Dads to leave and unless they get the message fairly quickly this can result in quite a fight - a fight which could end up with the cygnet being killed. We are therefore asking everyone if they see a lone cygnet on a road or a place where it’s unusual to see one to please phone Swan Rescue on 07802 472788. Do not encourage the swan into the nearest water, as this could be where he has just been chased from. This happened in Caerleon last year when the wrong person was contacted to ‘help’ and a few days later we received a call to tell us there was a dead cygnet on the bank just up river from the bridge. So please call Swan Rescue South Wales on 07802 472788 for all swan related incidents. Thank you.
