 Affected by the epidemic, the royal family cancelled the Swan census for the second time in 900 years


During the activity, several boats counted the swans on the Thames, examined their bodies, measured their length and weight, and then released them. The whole process of counting was surrounded by a large number of people, and the scene atmosphere was cheerful and noisy. The organizers will also invite nearby primary and secondary school students to observe the swans and improve their understanding of waterfowls.

It is said that this royal tradition has only been cancelled twice since the 12th century, the last time in 2012, because of the risk of floods.
