A Black Necked Swan has been dubbed ‘The Terminator’ due to its habit of attacking anything or anybody that comes near his territory at the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust at Arundel, West Sussex. Arnie and his mate Lara built their nest and laid 6 eggs in January. They soon had to deal with snow and then floods, which threatened the safety of their nest. Staff then decided to step in and offer a helping hand and Trust Superviser Sam Halpin and his team came up with a plan to keep the floodwater away from Arnie. Sam said: “The water was rising and threatened the eggs so we built a mound from pallets and sandbags lured Arnie away and lifted the nest and eggs on top of the mound. Now Arnie and Lara have a supernest but it seems to have gone to Arnie's head he won't let anything near it". The happy pair's family of cygnets is expected to arrive next month.
