Only a brief post but I had to share that we had a Heron in the garden this morning. A first for me, I've only ever seen a couple flying over before.
I obviously disturbed it opening the curtains as it was flying up out of the garden, not easy to do around the trees in our small garden in a rush! It went round behind the conifers at the back of the garden and off into the distance.
Not a chance of a photograph with it all happening so quickly but the sight of my favourite bird, seeming like a giant compared to the regular garden visitors, will be etched on my mind for some time!
