Purple Heron at Nene Washes RSPB

© Will Bowell
This juvenile Purple Heron was found by Jonny Taylor on the reserve near the corral. It proved to be very flighty and was last seen at 12:10 landing on Garners, to the east of the reserve, where it would be best looked for from the south bank at Eldernell.

Presumably this bird was the same one seen at Thrapston Reservoir earlier this month.

The last record for the PBC area was in 1995 when a juvenile was at Maxey GP on the 24th September.

Grey Heron with Identity Crisis?

Grey Heron with Identity Crisis? Has anyone else ever seen a Heron sitting on the water like a Goose. I saw this today at Ferry Meadows. The water was too deep at this point for it to be standing on the bottom. At first glance at a distance, I thought it was a Greylag.
