Beware Swans on Road

I am very concerned about some Swans that have settled on the side of the road. They are on the edge of the River Orwell just past the Orwell Bridge (The Strand) Ipswich. While I was parked there taking photo's one Swan walked into the road and was therefore clipped by a passing van. Since then I have often seen them just stand in the middle of the road and the speed limit is 60mph along this stretch of road. I have informed the RSPCA Martlesham . The thing is just before this bit of road there are bends both ways and a biker would stand no chance if he/she came across these birds. So if your driving this way please be aware of VERY stubborn Swans in the road.
