Hi Füsun & Nick,

thank you both for your visits, and the awards. It is much apprecated. At first I wanted to pass this off as a pterodactyl, since it is such an unusual pose for a heron, but I realised it wouldn't fool anyone! Best Wishes Peter

Hi Steve,

Thank you for such a creative and witty comment, and for the awards. He is a wild bird, free to fly off wherever he wants, but I think he has learned that if he wants to live in the city, he must tolerate people. I guess he's also learned where to find free fish!!

Best Wishes Peter
