Binghams Pond (Heron)

By digital_boi
Binghams pond can be found on Great Western Road Glasgow adjacent to the Gartnaval Hospital site. A bit of a sanctuary for wildlife some of the species to be found are Tufted Duck,coot,Moorhen Common gulls,Herring Gulls,Heron,Mute Swan,Mallard, and goosander to name a few. A pleasing spot on a sunny day to relax.

A shot taken during another visit to the hospital the pond was full of wildlife on a very pleasant and sunny September Day (20th)

I hadn't realised so many species congregated there: I do recall seeing great flocks of swan there in the past.
Good shot of this heron amongst the reeds.......also in the past I have seen herons around Maxwell Park pond but not now for two or three years.
Perhaps other species on your next posting?

Nice shot. We see Grey Herons in Highfields Park, near where I live. They are always good for a photo.

Sounds a real wildlife haven Graham - I hope you were out that way for the sanctuary
and not the hospital.

Great find in the west end of Glasgow, we have lots of birds and animals considering the busy city here.
