Ready for animal quackers.

STRATFORD'S keeper of the swans Cyril Bennis gets to grips with a much bigger charge as he gets set for a fun day in aid of endangered animals.

The former mayor, who is also in charge of looking after the swans on the River Avon in the town, met the mock giant panda, the symbol of the World Wide Fund for Nature, at Cox's Yard, as preparations for tomorrow's event were finished.

The event has been organised by the Stratford branch of the animal charity.

The theme is the carnivores of Europe, including the British otter which could soon be seen again in rivers around the region.

There will be talks on wildlife, face painting, games, music, dancing, competitions and quizzes, with a wildlife painting competition for children.

The fun and games kicks off at 10am and finishes at 5pm.
