Took some shots of birds perching on the rowing boats in Nottingham University Park Lake today. It wasn’t until I downloaded onto the laptop that I realised that there was something odd about this picture. How many herons can you see? I’ll post another picture with the answer in a while. 😉
UPDATE 2 hours later
It was only when I looked at this shot, taken from a different angle that I realised that there were two herons – in adjacent boats. They were obviously both preening and only had one head up between them at any one time. Perhaps I should have counted the legs and divided by two! I would not have expected two adult herons to sit so close together without a bit of aggression.
