Spring Heron

What a difference a day makes, it has been a glorious sunny day with a real feel of spring in the air.

All sorts seemed to be taking to the air today, a microlight aircraft, the Heron, and I even saw my first butterfly of the year.

 While inspecting the remedial work carried out on the island Moat, I noticed the Heron sunning itself on the Island.
It was also a perfect day to release the rehab rock dove, after 2 weeks intensive care his ruptured air sac was finally healed !
 I let him go this morning but he returned briefly this evening for a meal in the aviary.
