The Grey Heron Ardea cinerrea
I saw them with the binoculars, and it was one of those times when I wished I had a boat, and could get nearer to them.
There were two Herons, and a few Cormorants.
The Heron on the left was making it's way towards the one on the right side of the island.
He stood up tall to check for the other heron which was half hidden by the grass.
The other Heron was now keen to reveal himself`/ herself
So he preceded to wade across.
This is the heron on the right in the company of a few cormorants and a duck.
Oh dear, is it really disinterest or just playing hard to get!:)
Only a few seagulls here, and a heron..
Another cropped picture
I enjoyed the day out with hubby, and will return to the estuary to check out more birds very soon.
