Duke Attacks

Our resident Cob Duke is very much a different boy from last year. He is taking his new defensive duties very seriously, protecting his brood and territory to the utmost.

This morning he and Penny spotted an intruder at the Bailey bridge as they were in the island moat.

The reaction was instant, as Duke set off to confront the intruder. 

He flew down and attacked ferociously, driving the intruder literally up the wall of the channel, as Penny looked after the cygnets.

Photos sequence are blurred due to new camera, distance, and not yet familiar with settings !
