Grey Herons, Muncaster Castle, 16th October 2011

Not much birding this weekend, a walk along the cliff-top path at St Bees Head
in Cumbria with Wheatear, Raven and Peregrine being the highlights. On the way
home we called at Muncaster Castle for the afternoon. Unknown to me was
the feeding of Grey Herons every afternoon, fed on the dead chicks left over from
feeding the various Owls at the aviary there.

Around 25 were present, giving close views as the dead chicks were put out onto
the ground.
