Spot the Halloween Heron

An unusually mild and sunny day yesterday for Halloween. The seagulls were sunning themselves on the posts in the middle of Waddon ponds that were meant for the kingfishers! But can you spot the heron amongst the gulls? Scroll down to the end of this blog to find the answer.

spot the heron?

The mice were also out on the platform deck sunning themselves while looking for scraps of bread that had been thrown for the ducks in the pond, but had fallen short of their target.

The swans were taking their young out on the water, although by now they look almost like adult birds. If a baby swan is called a cygnet, what is a not quite adult swan called? Why in the song did the ugly duckling turn into a swan when ducklings are not baby swans?

Regardless, I have photographed the cygnets growing up into nearly there swans and its fascinating to see them mature so beautifully as i’m sure you will agree.

If so try this harder one, the heron flew off to his house in the trees. Can you find him/her?
