The Heron has become very familiar over the last few weeks.
Whenever I am walking Dillie on Onny Meadows The Heron is there, stock still, peering at the ground.
As the Winter has gone on he lets the walker get closer before he launches into his teradachtyle flying stance and flaps languidly off.
Their wing span can exceed six feet.
He will be looking for field mice or voles. They also eat amphibians.
The Heron can be found anywhere on the Onny Meadows at this time.
