The Swan has moved very little since our last visit. Today the excitement came from Her mate. After spending about 15 minutes with my camera on the marsh he must have decided that I was getting too close. Suddenly from across the pond he took flight and started to fly toward us. High and dry on the 6th fairway Jessica observed me observing the female on her nest, the male choose her as his target and swooped in from behind us flying low over the 5th green and he dive bombed Jess at amazing speed missing her by only a foot or 2. He came to a landing half way down the fairway and kept close watch from there. A mothers day adventure that we will always cherish.

Have your say
