A morning Heron

Just a quick note today to show you this rather nice simple image of a Grey Heron that I saw yesterday. One of my tasks when I volunteer at Rainham Marshes means that I am usually the first to walk around the trails in the morning. At this time, when the trails are empty of people, it's not unusual to find the wildlife using the paths and bridges.

The bridge behind the Purfleet Hide seems quite popular with Grey Herons.
