On several occasions while out kayaking I have seen a Black Swan attack another of its kind with nothing short of blind fury . I have also witnessed a similar ferocious attack on the grey goose which appears to have made the area where Jerrabomberra Ck enters LBG its home.  A kayaker trying to defend him/herself from an attack of such vehemence may well have difficulty remaining upright.  Having said that I've never felt threatened despite having swans in close proximity.  The poor guy in this case was probably not wearing a life jacket.
