I have been seeing a lot of Herons over the last few days.
How such an odd shaped bird can fly so gracefully and silently I will never know.
I live not far from the river Avon and we do have a gert big fishing lake not far away but but I have never seen so many herons as just recently, they seem to be everywhere and at no particular time of day either.
If they were Storks I could understand it as we have quite a large military area not far away.
Most of the soldiers are married and it was about nine months ago that the area shook with the rocking caused by returning soldiers from Afghanistan ;-)
But as it wasn't Storks, has anybody any idea why the sudden appearance of such an abundance of Herons ?
