Dominant male Mute Swans asserting their dominance over other males. A wintering Whooper Swan (With yellow bill) registers his agitation at this violence and a Cormorant can also be spotted diving among the swans. The differance between a Male Cob and Female Pen mating and a pair of Males fighting is the mating doesn;t go on for as long ansd The Cob will hold the Pen's head above the water, whereas in a fight between two Cob's, the dominant one will try and push the head of the other Cob under the water, as seen here, and the attack is more prolonged. The fights continue in the folowing videos. Filmed at Scotch Quay, on the River Suir, Waterford, Ireland.
