A GROUP of swans and an Aylesbury duck who were rescued from an oil spillage have now been released back into the wild.

The birds were recovered by a team of five RSPCA animal welfare officers who found them covered with oil in the canal near Victoria Street at Clayton-le-Moors on October 5.

Oil can be extremely dangerous to water birds, leaving them vulnerable to dying from hypothermia by reducing the natural water proofing in their feathers, but fortunately the officers were able to take the flock they had found to Stapeley Grange Wildlife Centre in Nantwich to be cleaned.
