The beautiful Purple Heron

By movingmountain
Wide spread around the world in the tropics and subtropics. In Holland rarely seen as an endangered bird. In 2009 the development of a windmill park was cancelled because of the presence of Purple Heron close by.
Since a couple of years the numbers are stabile and even increasing.

Hi Harold
Good shot from, indeed, rare seen bird here in the Lowlands. Never saw one here in Reeuwijk. "normal" ones by the dozen, but this one. You were lucky.
Have a good day
