    Both swans had been shot in the neck and their bodies left by Claydon Lake in Cropredy, near Banbury.
     
    Thames Valley Police and the RSPCA were alerted on Wednesday and are appealing for information about the "really sad incident".
     
    Under the Wildlife and Countryside Act, offenders who kill wild birds face a fine of up to £5,000 and/or six months imprisonment.
     
    RSPCA inspector Annabelle Black said: "I cannot understand why someone would want to kill such wonderful birds."
