Swans take up residence at RAF Woodvale Southport

A couple of wild swans have taken up residence on RAF Woodvale, Southport.

The swans who are now nicknamed Harry & Larry, took up residence close to the runway last week (Mon 14th Jan 2013) and have been on site ever since.

It is known that swans “pose a significant risk of bird-strike” which could cause “a serious threat to aircraft, and the local area.”   Bird strikes is one of the most common causes of air accidents, and have been blamed for a number of emergency landings in recent years.

A spokesperson for RAF Woodvale said: “The swans pose no risk to aeroplanes here at Woodvale”
