Swan Holds Up Traffic On Road

A commuter has described his amusement after he witnessed a tense stand-off between a swan and a Ford Fiesta during busy rush hour traffic.

The footage shows the fearless swan aggressively confronting and pecking the car as the driver attempts to pass – forcing the car to eventually back down and reverse into busy traffic.

But the swan does not give up, and simply moves on to the next car in the queue – pecking at the driver’s door.

Erald Ratnathilaka captured the video as he witnessed the brave assault by the plucky bird as it attempted to protect its young.
