I went down to the river to see if my heron was there and I found him about 200 yards downriver from where I normally see him. This time he was on my side of the river although somewhat obscured by tall grass.
I watched him for a while and then he walked a few feet downriver to a spot where I could see him better. He stayed there for a while before taking flight and landing on a rock in the river.
I hoped he would catch a fish – and a couple of times it looked like he might have spotted on – but ultimately it was not a good fishing spot and he took off and flew upriver.
