Rails and Herons

After spending quite a bit of time down at the Watercress beds hoping to get a reasonable image of the Water Rail was finally rewarded when one morning the rail decided to come out and have a quick feed only briefly stopping

Also locally the Grey Herons have starting building their nests again in Verulamium Park with about 10 nesting pairs around and one really early pair with chicks three weeks old already. Also the 2 Little Egrets have been hanging around so fingers cross they decide to breed this year.
