A rescue boat crew from Burnham-On-Sea was called out on Sunday afternoon (March 6th) to help animal carers reach this swan that had become tangled up in fishing line.

Secret World Wildlife Rescue contacted BARB (Burnham Area Rescue Boat) at 3.30pm to assist them with the rescue of the distressed bird on a stretch of water near Lympsham.

BARB’s boat was used to reach the bird and successfully remove the line.

Secret World volunteer Martin Kendall said: “The bird had been reported to us by a walker who had seen it in difficulty and tangled up in a fishing line. We were grateful to BARB for their help.”
