The Grey Heron (ardea cinerea)
Went to Bushy Park to get some shots of the annual rut. Found it all rather quiet that day so, as is often the way, it was a case of having a look at anything else that was around. Came across this resident and rather nice Heron.
I hope you will enjoy looking-- although he has already appeared on the site.
Most grateful thanks to all who had time enough to vote/comment on the previous post-- the GSW.
