My Photographs from the North West of England and sometimes further afield.
Let me know when that tide's coming in won't you

I came across a few Grey Herons recently at Pennington Flash. I think most were juveniles, as they were a darker grey then the adult birds and lacked the striking markings usually found on the head. The joy of watching from a hide or behind a screen is that the birds tend to stay put and are not frightened off by the sight of me strolling up. This of course gives ample opportunity to study them a bit more and hopefully get some good shots of them too.
This chap was determined to stand on this post no matter how small it was.
You can see how dark the plumage is on this particular bird.
Having a bit of a scratch while not falling off his post. Impressive!
