Grainy shots of herons

Honestly there are Herons here!

Old Nog, flying on wide wings,

Flapping slowly across the sky.

A flight to a nest

Long legs and neck extending

Squabbling with its mate.

Grey dots in my camera’s lens,

Specks of dust, motes in the air

I see them there.

Herons, like long necked dinosaur birds,

Cawing and squawking.

Flailing legs and beaks.

Life is returning to the lake.

      1. My dad uses a rather life-like model of an eagle owl which he has on his roof! It scares the wotsits out of other birds, even predators. It took a roofer friend to get it up there though.
