Intrigued by Herons.

When I was putting the washing on the line on Tuesday, I saw two herons flying overhead and circling each other. Courting presumably. They are a huge bird and unmistakeable, with their heads tucked in and trailing long legs. There was a close up of their fishing action last night on Springwatch-wonderful to see their long necks dart and recoil. There used to be a heronry in the valley- amazing to see such huge birds nesting in trees in large numbers, sadly no longer there, but hopefully that pair are safely nesting somewhere nearby. Time to put out the washing hope.......
