Heron Walks The Plank - London WWT 7th May

A day back at London WWT was relatively quiet, although one of the Reed Warblers was venturing a little higher up the reeds than normal, allowing a few relatively reed-free shots:




From the wader scrape hide there were no signs of the recent passage of waders, although a Common Sandpiper put in a brief appearance.  Following some recent foliage clearance a new perching place was visible.  A Grey Heron took flight and landed on it, clearly using it as a viewing post.  I was hoping for a spectacular dive into the water.  Unfortunately it simply stood and observed everything.




In the meantime a Redshank was feeding and bathing:




Two hours later the Grey Heron was still there, although it had turned around, and was caught making some odd gestures!
