Young heron, Martock garden

Young heron, Martock garden

Martock, Somerset

I had a local clergy's meeting this morning and, on arriving at the vicarage, the vicar said: "I'm glad you've brought your camera ~ I just chased a young heron away from my pond and it's ran into next door's garden." I was fair excited as I'd never had a chance to shoot a heron this close and that still!!

Thanks for looking,
