Award Shortlist   


By Andysnapper

Firstly many thanks for the votes and kind words on yesterday's LTT shot and special thanks to Bob Paige for his user award, always appreciated.

This is a shot from Marley Mere in Cheshire taken last year. The black swan was moving in to the white swan's territory and a massive fight ensued. The white swan (I think it is a Mute) was a much bigger bird and soon saw off the interloper but it was a spectacular scrap.

Thanks for looking.
