After clearing away the cob webs, I noticed that the kayak had drifted toward the Leacock Villages.
I was not alone.
This is rather close and I suspected that the heron might be a juvenile. I do not know of any nearby, say within 10km, heronry. Maybe somebody would comment?
It was not bothered by my presence as I drifted closer. It was busy preening its feathers.
One leg, even - odd!
I talked to it in the hope that maybe in another year I would be permitted to photograph it again.
I think it heard me!
I paddled on to other adventures, leaving the heron watchful.

PS The heron has stayed now for 3 days feeding itself. I have not approached it again.
