I finally got reasonably close to a Grey Heron at my local Rodden Reserve, only because he flew in close to where I was standing. We played a waiting game between us as I'm sure he was aware I was there. I stayed stock still for about 20 minutes, but in the end, he decided to fly off to another part of the Reserve and I managed to get a couple of shots. It's a shame it didn't stay nearby to hunt for food. Maybe another time. (click to enlarge)
I also saw my 99th bird species for Rodden Reserve the other day. It was a lone Greylag Goose. He didn't stay long though. By the time I'd walked round the Reserve, it was gone. I wonder what my 100 bird will be?
I'll post some more trial photos shortly.
