Black Swans of Dawlish

The black swans in Dawlish have been a major tourist attraction for decades and are used as the town’s emblem. They were introduced to the town from New Zealand at the start of the 20th Century, by a former Dawlish resident who emigrated. The black swan is native to Australia.
