Incomer



The black swan was not 'originally' native to the United Kingdom, but imported as ornamental birds from Australia. Although this one was on its own and therefore wasn't breeding, I'm told there is a small colony down in Galloway which seems to be maintaining itself.

It sounds like it's not as rampant as other incomers (eg grey squirrel) at any rate.
