Rushcliffe Country Park 2/2

There is plenty of wildlife to be seen at the park and during our visit I was lucky to capture this Heron sitting quietly, as they do, on the centre of one of the small platforms built for the wildfowl out in the lake.

quite a wide variety of birds here but i imagine the heron dominates the scene, Brian.
Brian Walbey: There are several little islets like this in the lake for birds to land. These were about the only birds there that day, it wasn't the time of year when the birs come in to live out the winter months.

He's looking a bit fed up with the squawking of the gulls, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I suspect he was keeping an eye out for a passing fish.
