Hockey season has started which means morning walks around the lake. It is dark when I set off and the birds are just waking up. By the time I got round the pigeons which had been gently cooing were flitting around, I had heard the geese fly over honking loudly and land in the middle of the lake before floating serenely to the bank. Today, as well as the usual pukeko, ducks and moorhens I saw a solitary grey heron and a couple of white spoonbills. Difficult to get in-focus shots of moving birds in the mist but I like this one of the heron. Interesting any which way round.
An ‘easy’ 10km training walk today and since Gus had to be down at the hockey turf for Suburbs trials I was back at the lake. The waterlilies are resplendent at the moment and I took a few photos. But today’s pick is a grey heron eyeing something up amongst the lily pads.
