It is very rarely that those fishing at Denbury don’t respect the Wildlife and the animals. Probably only two that I can remember. One was last year and the other just over the past week or so. That person allowed one of the Black Swans to swallow a fishing hook and did not tell us that it had happened. Since the last time that it happened we have rules about fishing and the Swans. Nothing that would cause those fishing any disturbance, but would stop the Swans from getting injured. The worst part was that who ever it was did not tell us.

I only realised yesterday afternoon when I saw a swelling at the top of the Swans neck. A first I thought that it was the original Swan and that the injury had started to get worse. It was quite easy to catch it. This time we put a net right across the lake and walked it to one end trapping the Swan in the reed, it was then easy to catch it with a very large fishing landing net. Vicky I noticed on the Forum had seen me rowing trying to get the Swan up on end of the Lake.

I believe it is a Pen that is injured. We decided that we would send the Swan to the Swan Sanctuary at Shepperton, Middlesex on the out skirts of London. They have a great deal of experience with this type of injury. See their website The Swan Sanctuary is a charity. They do not charge for any medical care. We will donate what we would have needed to have paid to a Veterinary. By the time we had caught the Swan it was getting very late but their volunteers met me half way from Dorset where the Pen spent last before being taken to the Sanctuary this morning.

8.55pm. Just spoke to the Swan Sanctuary. The Pen has been operated on and at the moment all is looking OK.

I did tell you that the new camera would be working by the beginning of September. But as it is not I will tell you about it on Tuesday. It could have been today but I thought that you wouldn’t mind waiting another couple of days.
