The heronry was busy and noisy this morning. As far as I could tell all 18 nests are claimed.
I photographed herons at the heronry this morning, from the North Pasture. The nearest nest was around 140 metres away on the island. It’s difficult to see some of them. I counted twelve nests, each with a heron sitting on eggs. There are more nests that I can’t see, deeper in the heronry. I can hear the herons clacking and see them flying to and from their hidden nests.
