Bewick's Swans in flight © Boris Belchev Today the “Flight of the Swans” sees events happening in Estonia. The campaign will track the Bewick’s Swanon its migration route from the Russian Arctic to Britain. Flying a paramotor, British conservationist Sacha Dench is following the migration route of the Bewick’s swans to understand the challenges these waterbirds face. Although she has been making good progress on her travels through Russia, poor weather and other logistical challenges caused the expedition to run behind schedule. On her behalf, her colleagues from Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust (WWT) will participate in a national action planning workshop and community events in Tartu organized by educational institutions and nature conservation agencies in Estonia.
