Pendeford Mill Open Day, May 2015, Heron's nest

The largest of the pools at the reserve has an island with a heronry. The birds have already raised this year’s chicks and dispersed where the food is better. I did spot one bird flyinng around, but it had disappeared to quickly for me to grab a picture. Thankfully, nests aren’t as mobile.
