Entrance Heron

Most times, when walking onto Wilden Marsh at the southern entrance, I see a heron perched on a rock at the far side of the weir. It always sees me and flies away well before I get close enough for a shot. This morning I crept slowly towards the riverbank, but the bird wasn’t on its favourite perch, it was on another under the nearside riverbank, and didn’t see me until I was closer to it. I managed to get a shot of the entrance heron escaping upstream.

  2. Very nice shot, Michael! 🙂
    They sure are elusive around this area (full of crass hunters)!
