Trust Thanks Scottish SPCA

In keeping with our commitment to look after the health and welfare of the River Nairn birds. The River Nairn Swans and Waterfowl Trust will be giving a donation to the Scottish SPCA for their contribution in helping to save Popeye our resident Cob. As I suspected he was suffering from a bacterial infection, this was so severe that it affected his liver which also needed medication. He had an X-ray and blood tests which were inconclusive. A donation might also come via our Avian adviser Sue Hulbert by way of the Swan Convention down south. 

Sue is a valuable trust asset with decades of experience caring for Swans and can be relied on for first class advice. The trust has rescued over 40 birds this year about 65% of which survived. Some of these birds are passed on to the Scottish SPCA, in Popeye's case he was one of the lucky survivors, and the SPCA have our thanks. The Trust spends over £2000 a year on the welfare of our birds, so any donations are most welcome.
