Priorslee Flash, Priorslee, Telford, Shropshire, UK.

A nice visit to see family and a second walk at the flash.
Ebird List.

Grey Heron (Garza Real / Ardea cinerea).

After visiting Pauline and David I decided to had a walk around the Flash / Hangmans Lake after David reminded me of the Grey Heron (Garza Real / Ardea cinerea) he had seen there a while ago and I was not disappointed as part way round I found it and it was amazingly well behave and spent a while in the reeds reducing the local frog population.
