Swan caught in rough surf

Recently DMR got a phone call from the a member of the public in regards to a swan getting washed around in the waves by heavy surf at Gallows beach. DMR team members with help from a local resident Paul, rescued the swan from the surf and was returned back to DMR for some much needed TLC and hydration. With a few days of rest and a vet check completed, the swan was transferred to WIRES Coffs Harbour to their pre release aviary and was finally released back to the wild. 

If you see any sea birds in distress call DMR, National Parks or WIRES.
