I’ve finally managed to get a picture of our neighbourhood’s most beautiful visitor, the heron.
He’s been hanging around on & off for years but by the time I’ve dug out the camera, flicked off the lens cap, switched it on, waited for the batteries to warm up, focused & clicked he’s already in a different county. His arrival always brings out our resident crows who spend there days chasing him away, dive-bombing him while in mid-flight and generally making him feel very unwelcome.
There can only be one thing on his mind round these parts & that’s garden fishponds.
But he is a sight to behold as he glides over the roof tops & struts along like a super model.
