Group of Herons

Jemima Blackburn (née Wedderburn) (1823-1909),


“This Plate represents a group of at least eighteen Herons, seen on Lochiel not far from Fassifern, one fine summer morning. The distant mountain is Ben Nevis. We have since counted twenty-three Herons at once on the shore of Loth Ailort.”
