It feels like I’ve hardly taken any dragonfly/hawker photos this year, which is odd because I think they are fascinating.
To me, it feels like they are equally intrigued by what I’m up to. This one seemed very inquisitive, buzzing around me several times for a better look.
We made friends at Earsham Wetland Centre, near Bungay, which we visited for the first time yesterday. It’s a fantastic place. As the website reveals:
Earsham has been home to a collection of native wildlife and rare breed farm animals since 1976. Our wildlife reserve is home to a wide variety of wild animals that live on the scrapes and amongst the wildflowers that surround the paddocks. Mallard, Gadwall, Shoveler, Teal and Shelduck can usually be found dabbling in the shallow lakes, being occasionally joined by Oystercatchers, Redshank, Curlew and Lapwing.
We didn’t get to stay for long because Freya added another animal to the long list of things she is now terrified of.
Meet John. A 10-week-old orphaned fawn. Adorable, right? Apparently not.
No sooner had we arrived than Freya wanted to go home. We managed to get her to stay for an ice-cream in the end but then some chickens came under the picnic table and it was game over.
Poor Freya, it must be horrible to be so frightened. It’s come on all of a sudden. Any tips on how best to help her greatly appreciated.
I hope you’ve had a good week.
