The black swans of Dawlish in England were brought there from Australia almost 100 years ago but have since become nearly synonymous with the town. The residents and visitors alike are smitten with the sight of these stunning birds.
But their lineage was in jeopardy until a courageous man with a broom and a bucket got to work. A family of baby swans had become trapped under this rushing flow of water and lacked the swimming ability to save themselves.
Thankfully the cygnets were rescued by a resourceful game warden who was ready with just the right tools for the job. Well, maybe not exactly the right tools.
Maybe even the wrong tools. But the job got done and at the end of the day.
