Beware Geese

This time of year the Swan protects his nest and surrounding area like a Soldier guarding his camp, anyone who comes within a large area while his lady swan is sitting on her thrown is dicing death.

While i observed the Swan last year it was clear that the young Canada Goose and Greylag goose are both favorates for chasing even when ther no wher near the nest site.

What is clear is that once the Swan picks out a goose it will persist in chasing around the whole lake even when clear of the nest site, its is just nice that the goose can take off within a few feet so can quickly take off and land.

The Swan above is full attack posture ready to pounce at any minute.
