RE: mere sands wood


I hear that the Night Heron is considered to be an American-race bird?

Night Heron today from Cyril Gibbons hide showing really well and it actually movedwink.gif
Also seen from path behind trees. A closer view from here but a bit obscured by branches.

Nice Little Grebe close up. Only other birds of note were 2 Red Legged Partridge and a few Stock Doves in with the wood pigeons.

Nice to see you again Mr Woosey.

Cheers Dean.

Had a peek today, early afternoon. The light was terrible, looking straight into the sun and the bird is roosting back on and head down - not very exciting. Best to try early morning. The car park is locked at 5pm so I would assume the hides are also - so no chance of catching it coming to life.
