One of the Pennington Herons with a fish
Same Heron, different fish!
S'easy when you know how, innit.
Nice captures Nige, good to see the Heron not going short of fish although he'll need a few more to fill him up !
All I could muster up is a very small patch of blue sky for five mins during the afternoon with a young Swallow getting all excited about its first impending trip to Africa shortly -
Hopefully next year it will return with fully grown streamers lol
and same afternoon today but different sky !!! and not much of a chance of catching those HM's in speedy flight
and courtyard robin wondering when it was going to stop raining lol

In reply to HAZY:
Quick trip to the river today, on the hunt for a perching Kingfisher, as I haven't seen one in months, and also to experiment a little with exposure compensation, as my sister said it would help with my Little Egret shots...
Well, what do you know....she know's what she's talking about
And the KF I hear you ask.....
Well they do still perch in Dorset, but hidden in tree's, not out in the open like certain other photographers manage to see...mentioning no name BOB!!!
EDIT … I forgot the kestrel!!

If you were small, bright blue and orange you'd soon learn to hide in trees ... especially when there are Kestrels about
A nice set of river birds.
