Blogger: Kathryn Leigh, Date with Nature Officer
Well, it's that time of the year when H, our model heron needs to get himself spruced up. After one hell of a season last year, H was rushed to hospital for a minor operation on one of his legs. This did not go well, and the procedure was more complicated than first thought, with the result being an overnight op in theatre. The good news is H is out today, he is looking mighty fine and now waiting patiently for his paint job. Well it's soon time to start showing off to the ladies and he'll be off to Verulamium Park to join the rest of the gang for the start of the breeding season. There is a lot of work that goes into the St Albans Date with Nature starting on the 19th of February, H we couldn't do it without you.
He was on his last legs (excuse th pun) but now looking pretty good and raring to go. Will you be going to St Albans to see him Stinabeena?
Pleased to know H is out and ready for Date with Nature, he is looking very healthy and happy at last!x
