Swan Upping

Friday, 20 July 2018 - 5:00pm

This week is the traditional week in which the census of swans is undertaken on the Thames. The Royal Swan livery company are joined by scientists. They commence tagging the swans and checking their health at Sunbury-on-Thames on Monday and finish with a Loyal Toast to Her Majesty the Queen at Abingdon-on-Thames on this Friday 20th.

www.royalswan.co.uk  gives a nominal time of 5pm. The arrival in Abingdon can be early afternoon into mid evening depending on numbers of birds. On a fine day this is a good opportunity for a swan upping picnic. Take some photographs to enter into Abingdon Camera Club's Summer competition open to everyone.
