Lonely swan disappeared

Lonely swan disappeared

The Norilsk residents hope that the bird has left for the winter.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The swan on Dolgoye lake, whose fate was watched not only by the Norilsk people for several weeks, but also by the entire region inhabitants, has not appeared for several days.

The townspeople hope that the bird gained strength and flew away for the winter. Earlier, we told that after a post on the Instagram account of the Norilsk photographer Alexander Haritonov, the region’s Ministry of Ecology birds got interested in the swan’s fate and the Krasnoyarsk zoo was ready to accept the bird.

For more than a week the rescuers had been catching the bird to be examined by veterinarians, and after quarantine they hoped to send it to the Royev Ruchey flora and fauna park in Krasnoyarsk. But all attempts were unsuccessful: the swan broke free from the nets and flew away.

And now it has been absent for several days. As Alexander Haritonov wrote, before disappearing, the bird had been preparing for a long journey:

“It ate heavily, cleaned out feathers, made short flights, stretched his wings. I am sure that he is doing well. After all, he is part of nature, and nature is much more intelligent than humans”.

Swans can fly up to 500 kilometers and more per day, and the Norilsk people hope that ‘their’ bird is already in a warm region. But the story may not be over yet: the swan had already disappeared for several days, and then returned to the lake. Who knows, maybe we will see the lonely swan again.

Earlier, we reported that the Nornickel employees rescued the chicks of the upland buzzards, which hatched in the industrial zone. Also, Taimyr photographers managed to capture one of the rarest and most beautiful birds in Russia – the kloktun duck.
