There is a gbh rookery in downtown Richmond, Va on the James River. It's takes less than 10 min to walk to one of the trendiest parts of the city from the rookery. I've been there several times now, and will go back when I can. There is a railroad bridge that crosses the river next to the tiny island where the rookery is located. Part of the bridge is concrete with a sidewalk and handrail, and it's at the closest point to the rookery. There's room to set up my tripod, and room to move out of the way of the infrequent trains. Actually, there hasen't been one on the bridge when I've been there.
I Don't post often, but thought I'd post some. The morning was very foggy and I had to wait for the fog to lighten several times. I also had to shoot at a higher iso than I wanted. The herons have stripped the nearby ground of all twigs that could be used in nests, and are now breaking off branches to use.
