An entire family of swans from Wanstead Park were relocated to The Swan Sanctuary in Middlesex last month.

“The Ornamental Water swan family were living in horrendous conditions due to low water levels. The swan rescue volunteers monitored the family of six daily, and as temperatures started to soar, the decision was made to remove them from their territory and temporarily relocate them to a woodland pond in the sanctuary,” said Helen O’Rourke.

Donations to the swan rescue fund are welcome.
