Q567: What is the law relating to swans and what should I do if I find an injured swan?

Swans are wild birds. All wild birds are protected and it is illegal to intentionally kill, take or injure a wild bird.

If you see an injured swan, then contact the SSPCA. Do not approach as swans can attack and you may injure yourself or further distress/injure the bird.
