Wapping, wildlife heaven

By on November 16, 2012 in Wildlife

On my morning wander along the canal I spotted Mr Burns, our local heron, doing a spot of fishing.

I hardly noticed him at first as he was standing so still. It continues to amaze me that you can see this sort of thing in the middle of London.

Mr Burns flew off down the other end of the canal and resumed his fishing vigil from the top of the duck house near Hermitage and I wandered off too.

From my kitchen window on the Green Bank I can usually see crows, magpies, parakeets, squirrels and foxes.

For a while I lived in Suffolk and never saw this much wildlife.
