An injured swan which lost his partner has been treated and taken back to his home.
Prince, one of the resident swans at North Lake, South Hill Park, lost his partner, Finch, after she swallowed a lead fishing pellet in November last year.
Prince, who was treated for a leg injury at Swan Life in Eton, was showing signs of leaving the lake to find a new mate but has found love closer to home.
Jo Morley, of the South Hill Park Wildlife Protection Group, said: "We are all delighted to welcome the new addition and hope that she and Prince will live long and happy lives together."
The group are now looking to name Prince's new partner and would like readers to make suggestions.
