Grey Heron finds no fish in the temporary lake

The detention pond in Lightwater, alongside Red Road, to hold water during periods of heavy rain remains partially full, which is an indication of the volume of rain we’ve recently experienced.

I photograhed a full detention pond on October 7th this month – see HERE. I disturbed a Grey Heron when taking my photo. Lo and behold, when I took a photo a couple of days ago I disturbed a Grey Heron agin, you might be able to see it on the grass when you expand the photo.

I’m confident there are no fish in the pond, maybe there’s a worm or too. So, I think the Heron would be advised to choose a pond with fish.

One thought on “Grey Heron finds no fish in the temporary lake

  1. Be surprised where Fish can be found – how about on Brentmoor, in the section towards Broad Street/Birch Lane in a lot of heather & Gorse, my Newfoundland found a biggun a couple of years back (probably dropped by a Heron !)

    Incidentally, why is the level of the DP dropping so slowly this time ? – problems downstream in the culverts leading to Lightwater Manor Lake and/or the exit in the stream under the Guildford Road & Riverside Ave & onward ?
