[CUCBC Captains] Wildlife Reminders

Dear all,

I've been asked by the Conservators of the River Cam to remind you (and in
particular coxes, coaches, bank parties, and steerspersons) of your
responsibility to avoid collisions with wildlife, and in particular to be
aware of the cygnets and ducklings that are now moving about on the river.

Whilst adult swans and ducks are quite good at moving out of the way of
rowing boats, the same is not true of their offspring.

The nests on Grassy corner and at the Railway Bridge both have cygnets now,
and both families are moving up and down the river, so you need to exercise
caution at all times to make sure you spot them and take the necessary
precautions to avoid collisions. This includes stopping a piece if a
collision is imminent.

We try to keep the information on this page up to date, but please do drop
us an email if you know something we don't:

Best wishes,
