Morning Visitor.


Roy was concerned that this garden visitor had come for a fish breakfast but then we wondered if it was looking for a mate and had taken a fancy to our replica Heron which had been put by the pond to discourage real Herons or so we had been told.

What a beautiful pair of birds!
It sounds like something out of a fairy tale, the real bird falling in love with the statue...

Maureen, I have tried to email you to thank you for your kind comments but my emails keep bouncing back. Just wanted you to know how much I appreciate them!

Love the photo Maureen - they do have a tendency to return for the fish though! Connie

It took me a while to figure out which one was the statue! lol - the one with only one leg! Wouldn't the replica work like a duck decoy to attract other herons? Interesting! What a beautiful bird.

oh boy, Maureen, well the decoy definitely didn't work. Loooovely pond tho, and let's hope it doesn't pinch Roy's fish.

No, it didn't work for us either!!
