Not a bird I see a lot of round here. In fact the last one I saw was about 5 years ago.
Update on the young heron. I saw her yesterday, She flew towards me but veered off to a tree nearby, she was watching me intently. I stood around for a while and she took off. I had shopping to do but came home via the loch and spotted her. She is part of a colony of 4 other heron. One younger than her and two adults. I am so pleased that my winter feeding kept her going and she is now settled. I will stay away from the loch for a week or two so I am not a distraction to her new life
