Owl and swans

Who (or what) do the owners of Prior's Fen think they're kidding?

A few of these four-foot-high owls (?) were scattered around the field at Stonebridge Corner, presumably replacing the loudspeaker which screeched out distressed bird noises.

If the owl is supposed to scare birds, the swans don't seem to care, neither do the 200-odd Woodpigeons in the field.

In among the Mute Swans were 22 adult and 8 1st-winter Bewick's Swans.
