Another Morning on Cathkin Marsh

I awoke on Saturday morning determined to add new photograph to my portfolio without interfering with family plans for the day.

At 7:45 I was sitting in the hide at Cathkin Marsh wildlife reserve with my Sigma 150-600 scanning the water looking for something to photograph under the white overcast sky…nothing, not even a duck.

After a while a decided the day was conspiring against me and I gave up on the water and went for a wee walk around the reserve. Halfway towards the pond and the hope of seeing some frog spawn the silhouette of a heron passed over head and settled on the waters edge.

A quick sprint, or the best impression of a sprint I can do with a 600mm lens on my camera, and I was back at the hide in time to photograph the Heron being chased back into the sky by a pair of Canadian Geese.

A few seconds of high speed shooting delivered a barely acceptable shot of the heron flapping it’s way to an escape.

Maybe next time…
