Night Heron: Feeling disappointed after dipping the BW Prat Garry and I were keen to pick up the Night Heron as we were practically passing the bird on the way back up the M6.
So I guess our luck kind of changed.
The bird was mooching about on the far side of the lake between the bank and a jetty before a dog walker came ambling past and spooked the bird.
It took off and circled the lake a couple of times before resting on the nearside in a tree on the edge of the lake. Thanks again to Elise who would make a very good sat nav if she ever wanted a career change.
