Hegris at Uyeasound

This post should really have made it into September but didn’t! It was in the last day or two of September that I had a very early job on in Unst that warranted me getting the first ferry on the Yell Sound that day heading north. But I also ended up being in time for the first ferry on Bluemull Sound too, which meant I arrived in Unst before sunrise, so it was still too dark to properly see what I’d come to photograph! “No matter” I thought, and went off to Uyeasound to watch the sunrise – and very nice it was too. But, whilst there, I caught sight of 3 fine herons, feeding amomg the kelp and low tide. It was very still and quiet but they let me get quite close. Unfortunately, the light was poor so these were all shot with a fast ISO that has resulted in a slight loss of detail but they’re all quite pleasing and, in any case, these are some of the closest shots I have of herons!
