We are a swan rescue (Swan Rescue South Wales)here in the UK and we encounter the same problem with swans flying into overhead power lines. The diverters most commonly used here by electricity companies are the Clydesdale ones but a comparatively new design (which you may already have heard about) called Firefly has been developed by the Hammarprodukter Company of Sweden and which is currently being marketed by P & R Technologies Inc. of Portland Oregon and throughout Europe. These have been used by Western Power, our local electricity company and are extremely effective. The only drawback is they are much more expensive. I can send you pictures of both the Firefly and the Clydesdale on email if it helps. Regards Ellen
