Ugly Kids

Only a mother could love these, but I was intrigued with these Moorhen feeding their young. Whilst photographing the Night Heron my attention was continually drawn to the Moorhen raising its young.

Night Heron Part Two

After the struggle on Tuesday to photograph the Night Heron in Kenidjack, either the same bird relocated, or a second turned up at Polgigga. The photographic opportunity was outstanding, initially there were a few birders around, but at the end of the afternoon it was, me, Lisa and Dave Chapman photographing this stunning full adult in superb light.

Night Heron

All work and no play makes Sam a dull boy, so I left work at half past four today to connect with the Night Heron located in Kenidjack Valley, approximately a mile from my home. All the reports said it was showing well but unfortunately it had been flushed earlier and was  now situated  in the deep narrow section of the valley. Photography was a challenge (excuses) balancing the camera and try pod in a Ivy bush right on the precipice, with poor light and mist I managed to capture this record shot.
