This prehistoric-looking bird is a fascinating subject for wildlife photographers. Its fishing habits create great action shots and really effective portraits can be captured as they move in their own peculiar way. Being a territorial bird, there is always the chance of action shots should a second heron try to come in to fish.
Some years we find suitable nests for photography. Should we find a nest this year information will be released through the newsletter.
