Merryton Heron

With High tides this week the Heron's fishing ground at merryton bridge has it's limitations.

With Christmas only a few weeks away and the wintery conditions, the Heron looked a Scrooge like figure on the bridge today Pinched and hunched with the cold ! Surprisngly, he let me get quite close before flying upstream.

Thanks. Maybe Fagin would have been more appropriate than Scrooge !
