Sheets and blankets to be collected at Eagle Pond to aid swan rescues


Local swan rescue volunteers are collecting unwanted blankets to aid the transport of injured birds.

Avian influenza means nothing used for one bird can be used for another, and we have rigorous cleaning routines in place. We use bedding in the ambulance travel pods and also when a rescued bird doesn’t need admission but is held locally for observation,” said Swan Sanctuary volunteer Gill Walker. Bed linen, sheets and blankets will be collected at an event at Eagle Pond on 21 January from 11am to 12 noon.
