Not recipes per se, but there was an interesting article in Petits 
Propos Culinaires (PPC), Issue 24, November 1986, by Joop Witteveen, 
entitled "On Swans, Cranes and Herons: Part 1. Swans".

Witteveen examines the sources listing swans as food as to preparation 
and service for England, the Netherlands, Italy, France, and Germany 
during the Middle Ages.  There are some 45+ footnotes that should give 
someone a bit of reading!

Back issues of PPC are available from
