Newbridge Lakes wildlife

Sometimes when the fishing goes through a quiet spell, it’s good to look around at the wildlife on the lake. There’s been a heron on the peg opposite to us for the past few weeks now. I think it’s watching for some tips on how to do it. I’ve not seen it pay for a peg yet though and will report it if it doesn’t. There’s also been a lot of activity by the gulls, feeding on duckling chicks. I saw one in action today – not very nice but the mother and father duck were nowhere to be seen and I think the chick must have been lost.

I was pleased with the static shot of the heron though. Taken with Fuji XT-2 and 100-400 lens with 1.4 teleconverter.
