While working on the pier, Rob Adamson often observed the life of the swans.

The man has repeatedly seen how difficult it is for these birds to become parents, because during the flood their nests with eggs often went underwater.

In addition, newborn chicks became prey for foxes and other predators.

When the Great Ouse River overflowed its banks again, Rob decided to help the birds in danger.

“Of course, you can’t interfere with wildlife, but the water has already risen to the point where the birds are dying. I couldn’t sleep knowing this. I knew that I would regret it if I didn’t help them,” Rob Adamson recalled.

The man assembled an impromptu raft for the swan family all night, and in the morning he launched it into the water, securing it with an anchor.

After that, he carefully transferred a nest with 9 eggs and a mother swan onto it.

Mostly, swans behave very aggressively towards people who threaten their offspring.

However, this bird seemed to understand that Rob was trying to help and limited itself to only hissing.

Subsequently, photos of the little swans that were born from the rescued eggs were published by the pier employees. Colleagues were amazed at the work Rob did.
