Swans of Wroxham, Norfolk

Wroxham is a small town on the Norfolk Broads, I suppose you could say, it’s the centre of the Broads. During the summer you can not move for tourists most of who are there to have a boat trip on the Broads….. I have made the trip twice over the years and on a sunny day is well worth the effort of a packed boat. ย But on Bank Holiday Monday, the town was nearly empty, just a few wrapped up bodies against the cold, wandering around. ย The whole place was closed down, but thank goodness the loo’s were open, on the way to them you pass by the water edge, and as always there were a large amount of swans, but this time I could take some photos…..can’t normally get near them. ย Then we were back in the car and on our way to the next church in our ‘Round Tower Church’ crawl…….no church post today, as the internet is playing up and taking forever to download photos.

    1. Near where we live is a nature reserve where there are hundreds of them. Also we see lots on the Fens, feeding in the fields, again in the hundreds. They are beautiful birds, but can be a bit unfriendly if you get too close ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Lol! My dad used to raise geese to sell,in the spring you had to watch the mama goose for she was VERY protective of her young,even if they were half tame at other times of the year. Of course I had to learn the hard way about that.๐Ÿ˜„

      2. Oh I’m guessing that geese can be even worse than swans, they are suppose to be as good as guard dogs. Its funny we all have to learn to hard way to start off with ๐Ÿ™‚
