Night Heron images


Although it sounds as if the Night Heron was not seen at Ditchford GP today, please find a couple of images below of the bird as taken by Neil H a couple of evenings back...

Currently I'm with a fair chunk of the Northants Ringing Group down in Pembrokeshire, waiting for the strong winds to abate with a view to landing on the island of Skokholm. Here we hope to see and ring breeding and migrant birds on the island which should include Manx Sheawater and Storm Petrel.

Birding around the Dale Peninsular and Marloes area today provided views of Chough, Raven, Peregrine, Manx Shearwater, Fulmar, Black-tailed Godwit, Whimbrel, Green Sandpiper, Little Egret, Stonechat, Wheatear and Spotted Flycatcher, often in very blustery conditions.
