Getting the Wind Up

The young cob incomer is still hanging in there, and remains in the river for a third day running. Our resident adults escort it above the Merryton bridge and then leave it alone....until it comes below the bridge line ! The process of chasing all the cygnets out has definitely begun, and will increase in intensity over the coming days. They are getting the wind up now and always looking over their shoulders to see what mood the parents are in. Looks like the incomer wont be alone for long, if it does get chased out first.
