Murder on Castle Pond
Oh, and while we were away Pembroke hit the national news - so that's a bit of history!! On Castle Pond we have a family of swans, daddy, mummy and baby. Now daddy is extremely protective and fiercely territorial. Woe betide any swan who lands on his patch! So far he has killed 15 and so it goes on. Hannibal Pecter exclaimed the Sun and he was even in the Times. There are moves afoot to evict this antisocial family but at the end of the day they are only doing what swans do - guard their territory. I don't agree with this. If this goes ahead, another pair will take over and they will behave in the same way.
