Wonderful flapping slice of birdlife today as we enjoyed a full team away day in Kew Gardens. A possible new member of the team was with us as we walked by the Palm House. I have long felt that sightings of herons heralds some sort of good fortune – and now glimpsed a heron flapping into a tall tree beyond the Lily House. Then two herons exploded out of the tree, being chased by over 50 parakeets. Elaine managed to take this photograph before they disappeared raucously into the distance.
