Rescuing a baby Feral Pigeon That Flew into the canal

Today's wildlife Rescue was a baby feral pigeon it tried to fly but landed into the 
canal and luckily the baby was coming towards me and i put my gloves on and 
pick up the chick and made sure there was no injures. So when I checked all of the 
bird for injures I returned it to the other side to its nest and mum and dad came back it 
after 5 mins

Mute Swans Flash and Snow Defend Patch from a Arrival Pair with 3 Juvenile Cygnetsf ...

Mute Swans Flash and Snow Defend Patch from an Arrival Pair with 3 Juvenile Cygnets

Filmed  this on my Patch this Morning Flash and Snow defending there patch and chasing the 3 
Cygnets out and the adults swans too.
I took a Screen grab from the Video I filmed of them this morning 
getting chased around.It must of been going on for at 7-8 Hours this morning. 
It was crazy watching Flash and Snow going fast and try to drown them which was very upseting
to watch. In the photo you can see snow chasing one of the Cygnets away.

The Female Cob had to use all her Engery and try and get away 
from flash and Snow , She had no energy left in her and she was scared because he 
cygnets were getting chased.

Best Wishes 
If you have any Action Shots of Mute Swans Defending there
