Swan falls in love with boat!

Peter the black swan and the boat shaped like a swan

A swan in Germany has proved to be a bit of a bird brain after falling in love with a pedalo shaped like a swan!

The bird - nicknamed black Peter - had been following the pedal boat everywhere for months in Muenster.

The swan is even refusing to leave the boat to fly south for the winter so the pair are being moved to a zoo.

The swan is thought to be a girl and experts hope she'll find romance with a real swan while she shelters from the winter weather at the zoo.
