Swan Upping plays an important role in the conservation of the mute swan and involves The King's Swan Warden collecting data, assessing the health of young cygnets and examining them for any injuries. Swan Upping takes place in the third week of July. The Swan Uppers, dressed in uniform, travel in six traditional wooden skiffs, two each for The Crown, the Vintners and the Dyers with each boat flying the appropriate flags and pennants.
