Ah, yes. Fishponds are wonderful for attracting such creatures. I remember well the one that used to visit mine.

Such a beautiful piece of lethality.

Yes! like the fishermen in india that use a heron like bird to do their fishing for them, and they have to train them whilst they wear a disguise......i will look out for white vans driven by herons.....

Nice heron spotting but you're going to have to give us a bit more info on the "people dressed up as whooper cranes in USA" you mention so blithely en passant...

I'd like an ostrich for my roof please..

FilbertFox says:

an emu for mine please, or an albatross or a dodo. Or even a sparrow, they are quite 'rare' these days

I love the idea of an underground network of rouge roofers with highly trained herons. Maybe they could (or perhaps already have) trained blackbirds or starlings to do their evil bidding whilst dressed as herons?

A blackbird on little stilts to make his legs look like broken candles, with a cardboard beak tied on with string, so you get the impression of the large feathers at the back of a herons head.

Dhamaka says:

30th Jan 2007, 09:04

D, thanks. I have never read Terry Pratchett so I assume it is a compliment.

P, Ha, you ain't seen nothing yet! And what D says, please do draw it and blog it. I am just throwing a few notes together to write something later ;)
