Urban Pond.

Using google earth I noticed a park within a new housing estate a few minutes walk from our usual walking route. Google earth showed a good size pond on the edge of the park known as Dowds Farm. It was worth the detour.

Grey Heron fishing. According to a local, this bird visits most mornings.



On one side of the pond was a Moorhen’s nest.  The nest was full of chicks, well hidden in the reeds.

  1. Interesting how the heron looked in the first picture – feathers sticking up wildly, yet all flattened down. There must have been seaweed or some type of aquatic plants from the way he was walking and picking his feet up high.
