Where's the water?

      Actually it's about two hundred yards to your right Mr Heron, just forget about flying over to the river bank you could walk there quite easily. Now, could this be a slightly confused heron? The bird is definitely one that's hatched this year because he, or she, still has some youngster's feathers.
      We think the standing on the headland at the edge of the field is part of the hunt for worms and frogs which are probably easier prey than the fish in the river.
      Since taking the photograph we've seen this bird standing immobile three more times, each time in a different part of the field so there must be some good pickings for a heron's breakfast, dinner or tea in amongst the immature oilseed rape.
