River and Canal Friday

On Friday I went for a walk along the river, the canal and through Hirst Wood – with my camera of course.

I kept my eyes peeled for a sight of the Great White Egret that had been around but no luck.

Boaters, bikers and walkers were out enjoying the sun.

I also expected to see a Grey Heron but the edges of the river were free of them though a fair number of Canada Geese were leisurely paddling along.

The weir at Hirst Mill is a lot different now following the damage during the floods of 2015. The change in height is now over a greater distance and it is strewn with rocks – a place to sometimes see Grey Herons but in this case a Grey Wagtail was perched on one of the stones looking for insects.

So if you don’t see a Grey Heron on the river or canal why not…..

… look on the nearby walls. Or…..

… up in the trees.

Or…

In the air flying by.

But then if you want to see more than one why not look up into the fields?
