An old favourite from Falmer Pond was back. The grey heron was enjoying some late autumn sunshine this morning, perching proudly on one of the No Fishing signs at Falmer Pond.
That was from a distance, but for this next one I approached through the trees. It was impossible to gain an entirely clear line to the heron, but with a little effort I managed a couple more shots. The first is the perch from another view.
And then a final image as it crossed from the sign to the central island.
It had gone by lunchtime, or perhaps was sheltering out of sight. On the other hand, the rats were out and about.
