Heron on rooftop

the Heron has been about all winter watching over the gardens for a fast snack, we have a large fishing fishery in staining but i guess the fish are low down so garden ponds are easy picking, i have a net over mine

Is it on your roof San ? we use to have one that arrived at our garden at the same time everyday at our last place ,we had to keep the pond covered ., it's a shame because it spoils your enjoyment of it :o(

Good shot San.

thanx peeps for all your comments.
he is on the neighbours roof at the back looking at my pond and then moves to a few houses down and looks again at others most days.
they are wonderfull birds but never quite look right perched on a roof top.
he has landed in my garden a few times, once scared joe to death and joe scared heron haha
once fishing season starts he flys right over to fisheries for the big fish lol.
it does spoil the pond having a net but cant take any chances.
soon be putting new pond in im hoping when weather keeps warmer :o)))

Lovely photo Sandra. I love herons, but they took some of our fish when we lived down the road from here and so we had to have a permanent net over the pond. We always left one end open at the shallow side so that the wildlife could get in and out of the pond. We had a waterfall with steps as well and the birds used to love bathing in that.

lol Tog, will send him to you for his hols :o))
i like them to Linda and like you i keep a gap at one end and love watching the birds bath in waterfall :o)))

Lovely picture, my neighbour opposite use to have his smaller koi carp go missing then I too was lucky enough to get a photo of the offender. My neighbour soon got netted up after I showed him the photo.

Hello!! Sanbaz,How are my frens here in GOY??? Hope i was not forgotten for my long absenses, I was about to fix my papers for a while bcoz my name and my birthdate mistakenly registered wrong by my parents since birth, I will work as a nanny and tutor for kids,who was in other country, but thats a Big problem bcoz my name and my birthdate is wrong, I will consumed 6mos to fix it according to my lawyer but If my employer is going to fed up bcoz of long months to be waited and they need me now but i cannot go for now immediately and, if god will permits me to leave for the sake of good life but if not, it would be ok for me to stay here in the philippines, bcoz theres a lot to care of, im so tired for handling it, anyway,THIS IS VERY NICE PICTURE, LOVE THIS!!

I'm on the war path with our local Heron, it has taken at least half the fish in the pond. I have a strong 12" high wire around the perimeter, a plastic heron which I hate. Movement activated clickers ( from a pound shop) plastic windmills which again I'm not keen on. The only thing I don't have is a net which I might have to get but I think it will spoil my enjoyment and the appearance of the pond. Its a shame they are protected as I could think of some permanent solutions - but I'm not that way inclined any way.
I have never caught him on camera but I am determined to so great photo.

im sorry about your fishies KF its so sad isnt it when they get taken.
i had a giggle at all your devices haha, sounds like high security prison lol
i agree about the net, i hate mine but will have to keep it at least untill my new pond is in, i thought about a small bridge across to make it look nice and also the deture heron landing, a thought or more plants around to stop it landing at the edge.
a tough one isnt it.
hope you dont lose anymore KF.
