Black Crowned Night Heron

Went out this morning to a small Black Crowned Night Heron colony not very far from Stanley. This year there are 15 nests which is 2 up on last year. 

 

Some birds are still sitting on eggs while other pairs young have already fledged.

    These are some of your best photos – I thought it was lovely to find close-ups of the birds faces. A wonderful surprise to come eye-to-eye like that.

    Happy New Year to you!

    These are really great night heron shots. I think they were probably my favourite bird to photograph on the Falklands (excluding penguins!) – they have so much character. Keep up the good work
