    i have the worlds most aggressive swans at one of my local waters.they will physically attack you just for fishing in their pool.
    these 2 look very happy, did you take the snap Pete??

        Nice one mate - we had our first cygnet here this year since I've been here. 5 hatched, but 4 disappeared overnight one weekend. They stay on the fish farm ponds, so they don't bother the fishermen. They love pellets!

        We had a little egret a couple of weeks ago!

          Beautiful birds but they can be thick at times.

              I am also happy to share the enviroment,but it can sometimes become a pain.once had rats climbing out on tree branches to pinch my mixers off the surface of the lake.

                    Mark.
                    I used to work in bird conservation. Once you have hold of a swan they go very docile.
                    The trick is to nab the bleeders kneck with one hand just below the head.
                    Pull it toward you and wrap your arms round it's body to trap it's wings.
                    Easy once you get the hang of it. Honestly.
                    Their bark is a lot worse than their bite. Ive had them fall asleep in my arms when carrying them.
                    They don't bite very hard either.
                    Try it next time the big bully picks on you.

                      will do mate, i dont like bothering them too much , but they come looking for trouble. i have saved the things life once already, a lurcher got hold of it. dog got a boot up the arse, owner nearly had one as well. some people just dont care about rules(no dogs). all i got was wack in the face and a size 16 embedded in my leg when i lept off my box to get the dog off.
                      i ve seen those little fabric carriers for swans, the rspca use them, really funny seeing a swan being carried around in a bag.

                        Only ever had dealing with one aggresive swan,at shatterford(i think they called him Henry) if you didnt give him grub he took the right hump lol. but most disconcerting was to wake up in the middle of the night to find a deer in your bivvy looking for grub,pass the brown trousers.

                          Our cob attacked me earlier this year, so i grabbed him and carried him down the bank then stuck him back in the pool! they are very docile, he just stuck his head forward and grunted a lot.... not very mute that day, lol. I have recorded loads of bird species here - even had a pair of stork or crane, not sure which, soaring overhead as I fished one of the open matches in the summer. We get some lovely long necked black things too, not sure what they are!
