This swan was reported as sat in the same spot on a muddy bank in Thamesmead for an entire day and night. Although there were no obvious signs of injury or illness, something was obviously wrong and the swan was vulnerable to foxes and also to any human with bad intentions outside of the water - the thought of him sat in such an exposed location as fireworks exploded all around was worrying. So we attended to collect him, and our volunteer Lauren kindly agreed to take him onto the Swan Sanctuary for assessment. Another swan in the vicinity was not happy about us taking him, so hopefully he can be returned home once well.
