A Frequent Visitor

27 Jan

White-faced Herons are frequent visitors to the local baths.

I’m sure they find rich pickings there. Why else would they choose to come back, day after day?

I see them surveying the beach, suddenly stabbing downwards. The nearby mudflats are another favourite spot.

Their fight is as quiet as it is graceful.

    They do look so elegant but disdainful like a posh matron in an expensive tea room. I wonder what it is they find so tasty in your baths.

      So do I, David! I know that there are little crabs there but I don;t know if that’s what the Herons eat.
