A Fenland fisherman

      A Heron, watching me, watching him, always on the alert. He was about two hundred yards away from me in the middle of what was a wheat field last year and I've got a sneaking feeling he was hunting for worms.
      I accept that he's a better fisherman than me and he fishes in all weathers, well he has to hasn't he, but why is he looking for worms instead of fish?
      Maybe the Heron population is upping the ante a little and getting into some serious fishing.
      Well he is looking for bait, he'll probably be buying a rod next.
