In keeping with the latest trend on the Blog to include photos and scenes of picturesque scenes on my travels, here is a nice view of the Exeter Ship Canal taken from the wooden jetty close to the fishermen's car park. It's Saturday and the weather is tremendous for the time of year, one of the warmest October days since records began, consequently the canal towpath was very busy and it wasn't the best day for wildlife. The Heron was fishing close to the scene photographed above, and even a Little Egret was fishing on the canal because it was high tide on the estuary. However, he was easily disturbed by the walkers and left the as soon as anyone, including me, came within 20 yards of him.
So here is yet another Grey Heron "in-flight" photo, and the Little Egret.
