Grey Heron

Nocturnal Grey Heron, Barton, 23rd November 2016 © Vince Lea
'I have recently acquired a couple of Trail Cameras to look for mammals along the Bourn Brook. To my surprise, a Grey Heron turned up in the middle of the night on Nov 15th here in Barton! The time/date stamp tells us when this visitor appeared. The Herons have been more frequently seen stalking the meadows lately, as Short-tailed Field Voles have had a very successful breeding season and have been their main food item all autumn.' VL
