Teifi swan killed by a golf ball in Llanelli!

An interesting local story on the BTO blog ...
A Mute Swan, ringed on the Teifi in 2000 as an adult, was struck and killed by a golf ball while flying low over Machynys golf course, Llanelli, yesterday!

Meanwhile another Mute Swan of similar age is still alive and well on the Teifi. Z97987, ringed as a nestling by Tony Cross in 1998, is regularly spotted at various locations along the river.
