A Boomerang for a Drone

Tundra Swans being chased by a drone.

Hyoko, Niigata, Japan

I guess a good stick and a rock were once smart devices in human history. Now everyday I can side step walkers looking intensely into something in their palms. 

Today we stopped off at Hyoko just for half an hour but it was enough time to see a drone menacing swans on the rice-fields at the back. We also spotted a remote control zero fighter diving at them.

Could anybody tell me if this would be some kind of intended management by some kind of administrators, please? I have other photographs showing that the swans were startled.

A few times the drone came near and I was wishing I had a nice hardwood boomerang in my holster. The year before last we had a close encounter with a Steller's Eagle and our quiet attempted approach was drowned out by one of these buzzing above us. The eagle soon departed.

Drones are annoying to say the least.
