Grey Herons

Report. R.Lane. 14th October 2010

"Looks like the 'endless' butterfly days have finished ! Popped over to Par this afternoon and there was nothing new at the Pool, just the B.H.Goose and Andy, to whom I chatted for half-hour . When he left for tea I drove up to western car-park (4.15pm) where there was little of interest except SEVEN Grey Herons, all standing in mud channels awaiting the incoming tide (also many cormorants). Drove back via the Pool where there were 2 more Grey Herons ! That is at least NINE Grey Herons at Par today (and probably other days of low equinox tides), and not a Purple or Green Heron among them !
Must now see Autumn Watch since Andy says there is a short video of the Heligan Green Heron."

That must be some kind of record for Grey Herons at Par. Thanks for the report Roger.
