'Human swan' Sacha Dench is close to finishing her epic journey

A conservationist - who has been following migrating Bewick's swans from Russia to the UK - is due to arrive back in the country.

Sacha Dench, nicknamed the Human Swan, is tracking the birds on their 7,000-mile (11,265 km) journey in a paramotor - a paraglider with a propeller strapped to her back.

The conservationist, who works at the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust headquarters in Slimbridge, says the journey has helped raise awareness of the swans' plight.
