I went to Hartsholme at the weekend as there is a lot happening there at the moment. The Herons are very active, I counted no less than 11 sets of them at any one time, some areas of the central island (where they nest) were getting very crowded:
As always there are a lot of other birds, as I went to the park with the family I didn’t bring the tripod so the ratio of keepers was down slightly but I did use the panning technique and got a few acceptable shots of birds in flight or landing.
After these shots I got a few shots of my nephew who is also an excellent bird scarer. However it was still a very productive day, and whilst I wouldn’t class these shots as portfolio quality I am glad that I have them.
