Action Stations !

Our Resident Swans tranquil peace was broken about 11.30 this morning with the arrival of 5 new Swans. Looked like 2 adult pairs and a cygnet belonging to one of the adult pair. Needless to say our lot put the hackles up and set off down stream to take them head on, was no contest and all 5 were split up and chased out within minutes. The pen was the prime mover watched by our 4 cygnets - poor things will get the same treatment in the new year ! The pair with the cygnet landed again below the bailey bridge, but our pen set off and chased them away herself, returning resplendent followed by the cob.
The series of pics tells the story.
