#2 in particular is delightful, it's a lovely photograph. I don't suppose the geese were too happy with the arrival of the heron!

Agreed on 2. I was trying to capture some of these by the canal side, with the Sony and 24-70 (so close), with mother making threatening noises.

Thanks John -

It does have that ahh moment methinks.

The heron was quite determined to get closer to the goslings, chased once by one of the parents and I carefully walked the heron away from the group. What happened afterwards I dare not think about.

The one below from a previous day was also hunting for its food.


Anne and I hope all is well - enjoy the coming Bank Holiday.

That's a great shot of the heron. I do fear for the goslings, having attracted the attention of the heron. They are clever, cunning and tenacious birds, as I once witnessed when one of them outsmarted the neighbour's dog to empty their fish pond!
