Lone heron by happypat

Lone heron

I rounded the corner on my canal walk & came across this heron. He stayed quite stil until I got quite near him then up & away but only to the opposite bank. I think he is quite used to people walking along that path.

Three good things:
1. Boiler leak mended & a great chat to the boiler man who has lots of funny stories to tell plus a great take on life!
2. A tidy up of a mucky neglected corner!
3. Marilyn from down the road has done what I vowed to do every time I went out in the car. She has trimmed round the hedge that had grown over the name of our lane, people can actually find us now!
there is one across our canal.. does not bother about people, prehistroic looking i always think. loners too

This looks a great walk beside a canal! There must be fish in it for Mr Heron to be interested! Good thing you had your camera ready!

He is doing a spot of fishing I reckon. He probably knows exactly how close you can get before he makes his quick exit.
