Six years ago, I found what looked like a baby dinosaur in the woods near my house. I took it home, fed it, and it grew into a sausage consuming, fly swatting, white washing, yoga posing heron, who now visits us once every few days for a free meal!AMA!
I hand-reared the little guy from the age of a few weeks. I taught him to fish, and even had to take him away to college with me for a few weeks, which involved putting his 'nest' in the back of my car for a three hour journey. Six years on, he's had three broods of young herons, and is a fascinating visitor to our garden
