Swan Upping 2017

Published on:

Swan Upping plays an important role in the conservation of the mute swan and involves The Queen’s Swan Warden collecting data, assessing the health of young cygnets and examining them for any injuries. Cygnets are extremely vulnerable at this early stage in their development and Swan Upping affords an opportunity to help both adults and cygnets that might otherwise go untreated.

This year the Royal Swan Uppers, who wear the scarlet uniform of Her Majesty The Queen, are due to arrive in Abingdon-on-Thames at  the Brdige at apprximately 5pm on Friday 21st July.  For further details click here.
