Purple Heron, Barnes WWT London

Went to London Wetlands today to see the juvenile purple heron. It was rather elusive at first but it finally came out into the open. A lifer for me.

Juvenile purple heron.

There were also three wood sandpipers. Also lifers. My year list is on 209 so far.


  1. Never seen one of those Purple Herons before. Lovely Photo

  2. Well done! I didn't go (as intended) yesterday - hmmmm should have done obviously!!
