Heron & Chicks

By Len1950
A pleasure to view these young in their nest with the parent. Couldn't believe how close to the Park pathway and at such low level they nested, photographed between a gap in the bushes, just 15 yards away people are playing bowls.Smile Best viewed large.

Thank you to everyone who commented and gave their valued awards for my Stonechat upload, all very much appreciated.SmileSmile

Have a good week everyoneSmileSmile

Stunning series, they look a bit scruffy and their beaks out of proportion to their bodies.
