"Balancing Time on the Isle of Wight"

Today's bike ride took me to the Isle of wight- but not the one most of you know. This is Isle of Wight Pond at the centre of Bookham Common and the wildlife here is very varied. I saw this Heron here last time I came, but this time for the whole time I was here- mostly chasing dragonflies with the camera and for at least 30 to 40 minutes he remained on top of this pole. He obviously needed a stretch of the legs but was most patient and I think unlikely going to get any fish. A number of ducks were doing their thing quite near to him and with all their flapping and splashing I reckon any fish would be away down the other end of the pond.
