Snapshot Saturday: a pond and a hungry heron

In the garden is a pond.  And in the pond there are some fish.  We live near the River Ure.  So near our home, some hungry herons live….

Back at Christmas time, William and family gave us a trail camera, wildlife-filming-for-the-use-of, mainly at night. This week, we decided to site it  near the pond, to see if a Hungry Heron would visit.  One did …..

The camera is still set to GMT. He really visited at 03.57.

This post is in response to the Ragtag Daily Prompt.  Let’s let them introduce themselves: RDP was started by a ragtag collection of bloggers who weren’t ready to give up on the Daily Prompt when Word Press was. So, seven of us agreed to provide a prompt once a week, and we began on June 1, 2018.’ Good luck, Ragtag!  This is the kind of party I’d like to join.

  1. Great picture! Mind you, our garden had grown so wild whilst we were on holiday that I think I’d probably capture wildebeest if I’d got a similar gadget.

  2. That’s so cool! And so close–you wouldn’t want to get that close to a real heron (although, now that I say that, I remember my mother used to let one walk onto her sun porch in Florida and fed it hot dogs . . . .)

  3. Naughty heron caught in the act, but they are just such amazing, intriguing birds. For me it’s almost worth having a pond stocked with fish just to entice them down!
