Big boar takes uncommon amble through pool

Uncommon seeing one of the Common's unwanted feral pigs ambling around in full morning sun unaware of nearby watcher.
Even less common having big boar fill the frame as he walks through shallows less than 10 metres  from the earth bank beside Payets Tower pool.
Make that closer to five metres. And not a hint of concern as he looks up at the lens.
And off he goes toward other end of the pool to chomp on aquatic greenery. Not a pretty sight, and a pest creating ugly damage, specially in and near wetlands, but - like most pests - a survivor and problem of our making.
