The heron needs to build a better nest.

We have a pair of nesting herons. Last January a hail storm came through and destroyed the eggs in the nest.It took the birds a few days to work out that there was a problem.

Our herons have built another nest high up in in the same gum tree. Unfortunately the chick and nest came down in the high winds during the week. One of the herons has been sitting up in the tree looking very mournful. There is still sufficient time to try again this summer, so we will be watching to see what happens next.
