  1. How can you manage to do 7 challenges in one post, Babsje? 🙂 Great pics of those nests.

  2. You couldn’t hear the soundtrack in the background: “1-2-3 nod, 1-2-3 preen, 1-2-3 bow…”

  3. Great shots of the herons!

  4. Nice – herons are one of my favourite birds – when I see one I always think I’ve seen something.

    Cheers – Stewart M – Melbourne

  5. Well spotted and captured….. one of those images that crop up once in a blue moon

    Thanks for this
