An eventful start to the day with a report of an injured Mallard in Odiham. Rangers Louise and Adam went out to rescue him when they got stuck in traffic next to Odiham Common. A swan was in the middle of the road so Ranger Louise jumped out and grabbed it and we took it to be released on the Basingstoke Canal. We meet to Water Board Ranger there who explained that this swan had been missing for a few days, we found its family and let it go to be reunited with Mum, Dad and siblings. It probably mistook the road for a stream. We finally found the mallard and unfortunately he had a sprained leg but his wings and other leg are fine so we released him on Fleet Pond as we know he'll get lots of food there. Look out for a male mallard on Fleet Pond he might have a limp!
