Christmas Spirit - Not

Although our Resident swans allowed the incomer to stay with them last night and even today, they had no intention of offering peace and goodwill . It appears to be a large male cygnet and I think he thought they would be a welcoming flock, instead even our cygnets were practising their ejecting methods by escorting him up and down the river. As darkness fell the incomer was escorted out of the harbour by our pen who then turned on her own cygnets for a bit of harassment ! Unless the weather gets much worse, it looks like our lot will be pushed out of the river within a week or so. Such is the life of Swans and their ways !
