Squacco Heron

By Adderwatcher
Good day all,
Heres a shot of a Squacco Heron (Ardeola ralloides) taken at Blackbrook zoo yesterday. Really pleased with how well it came out as it was taken through glass!!

Thought it needed to be seen bigger so i'm an E2 member again, Hope you like this one and thanks for the clicks and comments on my last upload.

A lovely close-up. Is this the same as a pond heron? I loaded my version of that recently. Looks very like it.

Hi Alan, No this is a different species of heron though both the Squacco heron and Indian pond heron look very similar especially in size and build.
