Herons Return to Nottington

At Mandas flat, we are blessed (or maybe thats cursed) with a small Heronry in the neighbouring woods.  The Herons generally return to their nest sites in about February, and today, I noticed familiar squawks indicating that the first herons of 2011 have returned.

The Herons are rather raucaus and argumentative, particularly the youns, apparently having no need for sleep, chattering and arguing well into the small hours.  However, the young are very inquisitive, and make good photographic subjects when they are able to see out of the nest.

Here are a couple of shots that I took in 2010 from the garden behind the flat.
