Purple Heron (Ardea purpurea)

Purple Heron (Ardea purpurea)
It’s amazing sometimes, when you’re actively searching for a species they’re hard to pin down. Yet, when you just go and see what’s out there, they’re all over the place. I saw 3 of these lovely birds in the space of 2 days. This one is a juvenile, not quite in adult plumage yet.
