Swallowtails & Lizards

A day at Norfolk Wildlife Trust Hickling Broad was a real delight ,unlike our two previous visits we managed to witness the Swallowtails on the wing.We were met by this lovely Peacock that was always up for a photo shoot as well as cleaning up around the picnic tables etc,the board walk area at Hickling was the best place to see the Swallowtails which gave rise to its own set of problems trying to photograph them as well as trying not to stand on any of the hundreds of Common Lizards that were everywhere on the boardwalks ( it's been a real good year for the Lizards).

 Here's a few close ups of the locals !

 No Common Cranes nesting this year although they did come for a look but decided to go elsewhere and Bittern sightings are low possibly due to all the sea defence work that is tacking place there at the moment,moving on up to Cley marshes for my next post.
