Fascinating stuff, which shows it can be about more than just taking images and as much about learning about behaviours. Interestingly, I've become aware of more herons around and about here than previous.They are fun to watch...............some land above the nest and limb-walk in, and others fly straight in.

Can't wait till this spring to do it again. ( Wish i had a FF with a 600mm L lens.) It's an awesome place.........birds flying in and out all day long...........young squaking all day for food.
