TQ1873 : Heron at Bishop's Lodge Pond, Richmond Park

taken 7 years ago, near to Richmond, Richmond Upon Thames, Great Britain

Heron at Bishop's Lodge Pond, Richmond Park
Heron at Bishop's Lodge Pond, Richmond Park
This species, the Grey Heron, Ardea cinerea, is one which has done very well in the London area in recent decades. Within Richmond Park, there is a heronry in Pen Pond Plantation, and herons are an everyday sight - something which was not the case as recently as the early 1970's.

What strikes me about this image is how the bird seems almost camouflaged in these watery surroundings. For another view, taken moments later, see: LinkExternal link
