Whilst photographing the Cuckoos mentioned in an earlier article, it became apparent that the local Reed Buntings were not pleased to see them in their locale. What ensued was a high speed dispute where the female Cuckoo in particular became subject to an ongoing aerial bombardment from their much smaller combatant. The Bunting would dart in stopping just short of the Cuckoo in an attempt to drive them out, something which was largely ineffective. The following images were shot in reasonably bright early morning sunlight at upward of 1/1000 of a second shutter speed and an ISO also above 1000, even so the images still show an amount of movement in the attackers wing tips.
