Swans Through the Seasons

Not-Too-Close Encounters
Sub Title:Papa Swan Carries On...

Papa Swan never gives up! He’s busier than he’s ever been with the new families of young raccoons to chase and, hopefully, intimidate.

Swans’ eyesight is very keen, and when he spots a raccoon from across the lagoon – he pedals over at top speed, to arrive in full hissing majesty until the offending furry youngster runs away.

Raccoons predate swans’ eggs, and pose a danger even to adult birds but the circumstances at Lost Lagoon appear to give our swans the “upper hand” and as you can see from the picture below, they make the most of it!

“Help! I'm outta here!!”
