Wildlife Bonanza

Usual walk back to work through the park this morning with camera at the ready.  Thought I might catch a shot of a duck or two when I saw this chap standing motionless by the side of the pond.


This is the first time I’ve seen a heron in the park, it’s a busy place, the main thoroughfare for students from one campus to the next.  Lots of dog walkers and duck feeders about.


A few moments later he took off and I thought that was it, but a short flight took him onto the central island where he kept a close lookout for a tasty snack.


Just as I was thinking what a lucky shot that was, this little lot swam into view

Three in a row


Off they went

and so did I,  talk about right place, right time.
