Swan watchers needed to help protect flock on Wanstead Flats


A network of volunteers who help protect the local swan population are seeking more ‘swan watchers’ to cover Alexander Lake and Jubilee Pond on Wanstead Flats.

“We were alerted indirectly to an injured cygnet on Alexander Lake (now in a sanctuary) and have agreed we need to increase our numbers (training provided). Our swans are important, and as we hear more about animals being abused in the area we need to up our game… If you have any concerns about swans, please call,” said Tracey Adebowale-Jones.
