This morning the Swans were down on the river grooming themselves in the sun, when all of a sudden a Goose dive bombed them. Geese are big birds but not in comparison to a Swan…and for what purpose??

Before I could get my camera up to capture the action the dive bomber had moved on to a pair of Geese further down river. There was a tussle in which the gander fiercely defended his lady, chasing the intruder away.

With the intruder gone, calm returned to the river.
