Pictures supplied by friend Pauline; which we want to share with you.
Took these photos of 2 branchlings (baby herons) last week at a Sevenoaks Wildlife reserve (Kent, England).
Four nests high in the trees.
One unoccupied. Two with females laying on eggs (presuming on the eggs) and one with the female and two young.
I love the punk hair on the youngster – see first photo particularly !
