Indian Summer Continues

The unseasonably warm weather continues with wildlife aplenty.

I managed to get a little bit closer to one of the SparrowHawks that lives around here:

Still not close enough to get a decent shot though!

A Grey Heron also flew over while I was watching out for the SparrowHawk. St Albans must be one of the best places in Britain to see Herons, as they are a common sight in the fields. Never mind the large breeding colony in Verulamium Park.

Also saw some more mundane wildlife, still enjoying the last vestiges of Summer:
