Great Egret and Heron

We are learning how to film using a smart phone through a spotter scope. It is amazing watching birds from across a lake , they just go about their business . It’s wonderful.

The first film is a great Egret at Summer Leys near Wellingborough in a breeze.

I had watched this beautiful bird walk through the shallows and do a spot of fishing before it sat in this flowery bank to preen.

It wasn’t alone in this flowery area, there were plenty of geese .

There were also lots of lapwings ,these are a favourite of mine. Summer Leys reserve is interesting with a number of habitats to explore.

Today at Rushden Lakes not far from Summer Leys we filmed a heron . From the lake shore it was only just visible , through the spotter scope we could watch it’s leg stretching antics with ease.

With practice the spotter scope will open up new finds.
