A Heron visits the pond!

We got a phone call from Joanne next door this evening: “Warning, there’s a Heron at your fish pond!”; so of course I rushed out with camera in hand … Margaret also rushed out, and got closer so that the Heron flew away:

The fish did not seem bothered at all, so I don’t think it had been there long enough to threaten them – but now it might return 😦
