White Swan, Black Water

Most people know that swans are a protected species, they have the Queen as their guardian. But do you know why or when it started?

Swans came under royal protection around 900 years ago, when the royalty at the time was rather partial to eating Swan and wanted to prevent the common folk from stealing their meals!

To this day it is illegal to do any harm to a Swan, let alone eat it.
