This week I spotted an interesting piece of news on www.birdguides.com that a Purple Heron had been spotted at Frensham Little Pond in Surrey. We took a trip down there on Monday evening to see if we could spot it.
A few other people were there and I asked them if they had any joy. Sadly nobody we spoke to had seen it but knew roughly where it probably could be found, as an earlier report on the Birdguides site had stated that it had flown to the SE corner of the lake.
We returned the following night at about the same time but once again, no luck! We bumped into two other people who were keeping look-out but they hadn’t seen it either. The light was also failing badly and if we had seen it, I wouldn’t have got a single shot.
I returned the following day but this time at 8am and spent a couple of hours there but it still didn’t show up!
Wildlife photography can be hard sometimes!
