This plucky duck sent feathers flying when it saw off a fearsome osprey.  The female mallard certainly showed the bird of prey the real pecking order in the fight on the waters of a quiet loch.<br />

Photographer Jo McIntyre, 35, took the shots from a hide a short distance away and said it took the osprey 'seconds' to admit who was boss. SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
