New (sleepy) life on the marsh.

In on the act

Sometimes others just try to get in on your act.

As I tried to photograph the Happisburgh Bluetail the other week a Horse just kept standing in front of me. I tried to gently ease it out of the way, but it moved back. I even tried whispering in its ear, but it wouldn’t listen. Eventually I guess he just got bored and moved off to another part of the field.

Similarly when we were waiting for Otter the other day a Mute Swan just wouldn’t take a ‘shoo’ when it should. Once I’d taken a few shots of him however it must have satisfied his ego and he swam away to the other side of the broad.

Face-Off

I wandered down to the park the other day and saw an interloper.

There sat on the ice with the Mute Swans was a yellow billed individual; a whooper Swan. Not common in this part of Norfolk these Icelandic migrants prefer the west of the county. It was however not welcome, a Mute Swan was taking exception to having the Whooper among them and a ‘face off’ ensued; resulting in the interloper being shunned and pushed aside.
