Swan rescue update

The RSPCA were called out today. Our family of swans seem to be lightly coated with oil. Seems to be from the Osbaldwick Beck.

They managed to get one on the cygnets out, and have taken it away for cleaning. They’re coming back tomorrow to try again for the others.

Yorkshire Water have been and inspected the Beck, and taken a sample; and called out a clean up team.

We don’t think the amount of oil is likely to be very harmful, but want to get the swans cleaned up as a precaution.
