Herons

watching heron

I was watching a young heron beside River Tweed, when I noticed this older heron up in the tree, definitely keeping watch on its offspring down below.

The Flight of the Heron

Flight of the Heron

“Flight of the Heron” by D.K.Broster was a book I was in love with when I was young – not a child’s book.  My mother said she read it when young also, and then when she read it again she realised it was a love story between two men.  I never realised this, I have not read it since I was about 10.  I had a crush on Bonny Prince Charlie too, until I was taken to the Castle and saw a pair of his moth-eaten trews in a cabinet, which didn’t suit me at all.  All the same, I never thought I would come to live in Scotland, right on the border with England, and see every day the heron fly from one country to the other.
