A swan got itself into a tangle with a baseball cap.

The Scottish SPCA was alerted when someone spotted the bird on The Shore at Leith with a baseball cap tangled around her foot.

Rescue officer Melissa Maitland said: “After several attempts of trying to catch her, another colleague saved the day and was able to grab her with the swan hook from the river bank.

“He cut the cap off and she was quickly released back to her partner and settled back into her nest with eggs.”
