Motorists are being asked to keep an eye out for low flying swans and swans wandering around roads.
East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service is urging motorists to take care and keep an eye out for swans on our roads.
“At this time of year juvenile swans are being pushed away by their parents who are starting to think about next year’s nest and young. Unfortunately juvenile swans are not brilliant at flying because of being so young and inexperienced. As a result they often crash land, misjudge distances and wind speed resulting in them crashing before their intended destination. Some swans are being forced to walk away from ponds and lakes by their parents chasing them away, meaning they walk out onto roads.” said WRAS founder Trevor Weeks.
