While the BBC cameramen have their lenses focused firmly on the wildlife, it is them that have become the main attraction for amateur photographers visiting Minsmere.

The reserve is a popular destination with our wildlife-loving iwitness community who between them spend hours waiting patiently for the perfect image.

BBC Springwatch is currently being filmed at the reserve, with the well-known presenters Chris Packham and Michaela Strachan making appearances at the beauty spot.

Our eagle-eyed iwitness photographers, intrigued by the activity, have captured these images - see gallery top right.
