Grey Heron

Email from Clive Knight – Mon 25/04/2022 21:32

Walking around the reserve this afternoon, as I came round the top of Village Green, I saw this Grey Heron skim over the trees and land in the field near the big pond. It walked into the pond looking for food; it did catch several fish and because there were no people or dogs about it stayed on the pond for some time.

Scientific name: Ardea cinerea
Status: Resident breeding species and winter migrant
Breeding birds: 13,000 nests
Wintering birds: 63,000
Conservation status: Green
