This is a favourite walk which I do frequently and really enjoy. I do a survey for the BTO which involves recording all water birds which are seen during a 5 kilometre walk . This walk is close to my home in Cheshire and involves 10 visits during the period from March until the end of June. This walk was made at the end of March, starting at 8 am. It was a very misty morning and taking photographs was rather difficult.
In this flight shot of the Grey Heron you can just about see the canal through the mist. He allowed me to get quite close before flying a bit further along the canal
