I was delighted to get my first sighting of a Green Heron whilst out at the Nature reserve last Sunday, What a ‘Fashionista’ is this striking bird, balancing on slender yellow legs, with his velvet-green back, rich chestnut body, fancy waistcoat and chic dark chapeau. Although he’s quite a small heron, that dagger-like bill looks absolutely lethal. Any unfortunate victim on the receiving end certainly doesn’t stand a chance.
I hope this has been a good week for you all and that the weekend will be most enjoyable. This is my last weekend here in Florida before we leave for England next Saturday.
