Those herons are vicious :shock: Not nice to dip the other one down the water :X:

That goshawk sighting is marvellous ^Q^ And also the common snipe and the duck with the crayfish ^Q^

I also like that mystic spider web photo. So autumn like \O

Gets me itching to work the camera again... O**
normely it's Egret that fight... it seems the Heron was in bad mood 0*\ and the Egret is much bigger ;-)
the Duck (no name Duck... escaped one) give me lot of work... always have to have an eye on "she" (I name it "la canne") to see what she found lol
the web.... well the web, nice work, but O-/
and the Goshawk O\/ only few minutes, but enough O\/

Goshawks are notoriously shy. Excellent pics you got of this one. ^Q^ ^Q^ ^Q^

Great action sequences of the heron & egret. O/\

you gave me chance, 2 nights ago :-) 0/0
was a lot of small ducks, Little Grebes, Coots, Moohrens, Rails... all of them flew away in a noise 0*\ =O:
and it stays only the time to watch if there is still something to catch O-/
the Egret came again, not the Heron
