Grey Heron Carshalton Ponds 26th December 07
On the 27th I went to Carshalton Ponds to test the video camera out- I got 22 species which is pretty good for the site. Highlights were a brief Kingfisher, a couple of brief Goldcrests, great views of Grey Wagtail but best of all was a fantastic 1st Winter Grey Heron which showed down to about 5 feet! It even ate offerings of bread from passer bys. Lots of people stopped to see it and I was told about it several times by different people- I had to keep saying I knew and got some shots of it.
Of course I brought my D80 just in case too and got some pleasing shots. I took 200 photos but I am only posting a couple of my favourites (above- click for full sized images).
