Swans in Saint Margaret’s Loch Poisoned

While out and about yesterday afternoon we noticed on the Edinburgh Evening News headline boards that swans on one of the lochs in Holyrood park have been poisoned (See BBC, Edinburgh Evening News); Saint Margaret’s Loch directly below Saint Antony’s Chapel.

It’s been confirmed that they have lead poisoning of all things and they are thinking about draining the loch in an effort to find the source.

If I find out more I’ll post an update.
