"THE" Cob

"THE"  Cob
The Mute Swan (Cygnus olor)
Swans do not have many natural enemies, and are well equipped to defend themselves against most predators.
The male (Cob) is responsible for defending the cygnets while on the water, and will sometimes attack small watercraft, such as jet skis or canoes, that it feels are a threat to its young.
Taken in Northumberland.
