Started out with the intruder-Mallard sticking [too] close to the Mallard couple for several minutes - the intruder is the male on the outside, swimming alongside the lovebirds.

Then the males crossed swords (ok, beaks!) in the second pic and the battle ensued in third and fourth pics.

Ultimately, no one was hurt and the intruder swam off to join another female.
