Popeye Protects

Popeye our resident Cob is recovering just in the nick of time to protect the territory. Yet again he had to chase another pair away allowing Penny his partner to get on with the business of nesting. He still has a limp but able to walk reasonably well on land ( short vid clip below.) Was a bit too far away and poor light did not allow good shots, but you can see Popeye doing his stuff above the island with penny on the nest, not the least bit fazed. After he sees off the intruders, he comes in to land in the river in front of the caravan site.
