This is the rookery, a year ago
Yesterday was just as beautiful a day,
But I didn't realize the herons are back until we passed this morning.
And today is an exceedingly grey day!
The herons are huge birds,
Three to four feet tall, with a six foot wingspan.
They look like grey monks, sitting drawn up by their nests,
But are magnificent when the stand and move.
I cannot select, here are all the pictures.
The sycamore that fell over the winter is not being used
But the park rangers say this rookery has become overcrowded as it is
And the herons are moving further downstream.
I waited for the train on the way home.
