We are getting a few Heron visiting the Lakes over the past weeks. I suppose we get a least one most days but don’t see them. I should think that they must have young and are wanting to feed them. We try to remember to check on the webcam around the Lake so that we can chase them off. This morning there was a very persistent Heron who when he was chased away was flying around in a circle to land on on Lake then the other. I had to go out four times before it finally flew away.

The Geese were hiding their Goslings under their wings and were watching whilst the Heron was around. The Goslings would make a good meal for the Heron. As soon as the Heron had gone the Goslings were out and feeding. At this time of the year with the Fish spawning they are also an easy meal for the Heron. The Fish spawn in the reeds on the edge of the Lake. It is a bit of a frenzy with many male Fish chasing a female trying to fertilise her eggs. Many times we can see the frenzied group half out of the water, allowing a Heron to catch the smaller Fish or to stab the larger Fish with its long beak, scarring or killing them. The Heron wouldn’t be my favorite Bird.
