Heron a G String

We're oop North.

Here's a pic of Lancaster Canal with a Heron which was playing Chicken with Oz.

Our local East Angular Heron flies off when we get 100 yards away but this was a hard Northern Heron who would be out on a cold December night with just a thin T Shirt and a packet of tabs stuffed into the armhole.

That's not really the North. I can see blue sky. I've been in Darlington for 2 months and have experienced 6 blue skies. 'Fess up. You're sill in sunny Norfolk aren't you!.

Perhaps that heron's a lass in which case it's bare legs, mini skirt, stilletos and boob tube.

Dave said...

If that's the north, where's the icebergs on the canal, eh?

"...this was a hard Northern Heron "

Probably one of the ceramic ones then Rog - they're ever so lifelike, aren't they??

Hotter: Lancaster..but it has been very murky since Heron Day.

Kaz: Thank goodness you are a Northern Twitcher and can supply all these extra details!

Dave: The Icebergs are the nice Jewish Family on the narrow boat.

Mort: I thought it wasn't moving very fast. Heron 'E Must Rush. er, probably not...

You're in the garden centre. It's a plastic heron.

We've got canals in London, too.

We almost went for a walk by one in June. Then decided we'd rather go to Sainsbury's.

The North wins hands down.

The Lancaster canal is beautiful! Made the trip years ago.

Rog said...

Scarlet: Yes...I think it was in Peckham!

Morton: One minute it was there and the next minute it flaming goes!

Geoff: Sainsburies are normally built near canals so it isn't too far for brainless morons to throw the trolleys in.

John: You can still only get as far as the M6 tho!

Richard said...

Where is that stretch of canal? It looks a bit more interesting than the ones round here.

Rog said...

Lancaster to Galgate, a dead end branch since they built the bloody M6 straight across it without a tunnel. However it is now linked to the main network near Preston so you can do coast to coast.
