Wasp Spider

As we were conducting an insect day last month one of my guests found a Wasp Spider. Rather interesting creatures these and although they look pretty fierce they are quite benign.

Beautiful Bird

If I called someone a gannet it would be a derogatory comment reflecting their intake or food. However, just look at this individual that afforded some excellent views on our East Coast Seabird Tour last week. So beautiful. The tour for next year is on the website and open for bookings here. It’s a wildlife photographers dream.

Gorgeous

A trip into the metropolis that is Norwich was a good opportunity to call on one of the side streets where a few Waxwings had been seen the day before.

Waxwings have not been that common this year – it’s not been a classic Waxwing Winter. It took me a little while to walk the area and find the likely tree or trees where they could be. There was only one. A tree covered in red berries. It was so depleted of leaves and so small I couldn’t even tell what type of tree it was but with the berries it looked like a good Waxwing tree. I brought the car, parked up opposite and waited. In the short time I was able to wait I never did see a Waxwing however a flock of Redwings came to gorge themselves on the berries. I adore these winter thrushes. These too have been scarcer up on the coast this year than normal.

Is a Hen Tern a viable term?

I took a group of ladies out on a Wildlife Tour the other week that were up in Norfolk on a ‘Hen Weekend’. I was impressed with the level of knowledge that some of them had about the natural world and all were keen to get the most from our day out.

Seals, Deer, Butterflies, Dragonflies and Birds were all on the agenda but this recently fledged Little Tern flew right passed our boat giving a great photo opportunity.

Taking the heat out of a Dragon

When the sun goes in cold blooded dragonflies rest a while. It’s then they can be photographed. Finding them is however another matter.

I watched a Southern Hawker the other day repeatedly fly up and down a hedgerow on a patrolling mission; very territorial these creatures. Up and down it went; time after time. At last a cloud covered the sun, the temperature dropped and it rested for a while.

So beautiful are these things … and so delicate too.
