The Submarine Menace........

The fish in the photos (taken a few days ago) are, I think, carp, which as far as I know don't pose a threat to ducklings and cygnets. They had come into the lagoon where we moor to bask in the warmer, stiller, water and possibly to spawn. It was a lovely day when the picture was taken, and the water was very clear.

However, next day it wasn't so, and Flanders was rushing around like a one-bird Destroyer Flotilla protecting the two surviving members of her brood from the underwater threat that she clearly sensed, even if she could not actually see. It was quite a long time before she calmed down and 'manouvres' finished for the day!
