One of the village’s regular visitors is this heron who every evening around dusk arrives in search of supper. It stands patiently at pretty much the same spot in the river and whilst I’ve never seen it actually catch anything I assume it must do, otherwise it wouldn’t be there. Me, I pass it nightly in search of my own supper - of the liquid variety down at the Rising Sun - I always stop for a few minutes just to see how it’s getting on but I don't have its patience (not with my beer awaiting) - one of life’s simple pleasures :)
