I was asked on Monday (18th) if I could confirm a report of a Night Heron in the county. Sure enough when I got there, this fine chap was sat on the edge of the river feeding. What a result I thought until I looked at the photo a little more closely. The bird has a ring on its right leg, and from the photo I cant tell if it's a ringers ring or whether it's an escaped bird from a collection?
Any comments welcome.
