[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
only the 4th ever recorded squacco in Northumberland, UK

The weather was dull but dry so I needed to push the iso up and was forced to use slow shutter speeds

Hello Mark,
A fine capture of a Squacco Heron taken in poor lighting.
The sharpness and natural colours are fine so that it is well seen in a pleasing composition.
The Squacco heron is a very rare visitor to Sweden.
Thanks and have a good week,

Hello Mark,
Exceptionnal capture! First because this squacco heron is an inhabitual resident in UK. 4th record: congratulations! And second because despite the bad weather conditions, your shot is good, with sharp head and natural environnement. Well done!
