Cygnets Return to Sussex

Over the past couple of year East Sussex WRAS has sent quite a few swans up to the Swan Sanctuary at Shepperton for specialist veterinary help and care, like those from Ditchling Common, the dykes behind Lewes Rugby Club and from Hampden Park's lake. To help re-address the balance the Swan Sanctuary and WRAS decided to bring 11 cygnets back to Sussex for release. Today (2nd Nov 2016) a WRAS ambulance collected 11 cygnets from the Swan Sanctuary and delivered them to Princes Park in Eastbourne where they were released into the non-territorial flock of swan. Once old enough they will find themselves partners and fly off to establish their own territories in the surrounding countryside.
