Like the grand dames of the ornithology world, herons stand in the shallows, seeming to enjoy the peace of their surroundings. With their luxuriant grey and white plumage and long legs, it’s almost impossible to believe these immense birds can fly, but all it takes is the approach of a canal boat, or perhaps the desire for a change of view, and they unfold into the air revealing the astonishing power of their great wings. Bring this natural miracle into your home with Lesley’s study of one of the UK’s more extraordinary birds.
