Spotted this heron at Waddon ponds recently. He was in no hurry to move and quite happy to sit on his perch so i was able to get numerous photos of him. Like all of us who were outdoors in December he was no doubt enjoying the unusually mild and sunny weather. Here’s hoping for more of the same in 2016!
In a closer view the heron was doing some early spring cleaning keeping her feathers in tip-top condition. Wondering whether she sleeps in the willow tree nearby or the tree , pictured in golden red, by the bridge in a more sheltered position?
A beautiful bird we wish her/him luck in finding fish in 2016 , so that we may all enjoy spotting more of this fine creature.
