Night Heron

Another day another Nobirds Mega, they are on some roll!! Once again no description or contact details of the finder, classic Nobirds. One of these days one of these rarities will be real but because no believes Nobirds anymore no one will go and look for them. Number of birders who went to look for the Belted Kingfisher 0, numbers of birders who went to look for the American Eider 0, numbers of birders who went to look for the flocks of Eagles 0, numbers of birders who went for the Night Heron so far 1! Which at least is an improvement. Keep up the great work guys!!
We are due another Tawny Owl!! Its that time of year after a period of Easterlies, the old Nobirds favourite Weather systems! Who can forget the Steppe Buzzard!
A little poem below not influenced in any way by REM "Nightswimming"

"Night Heron"

Night Heron deserves a top billing

The photograph on Nobirds taken years ago,
 Larrys turned around backwards so his creases doesn't show.
Every Nobirds Report reveals a picture in reverse
Still it's so much clearer

I forgot the Belted Kingfisher at the water's edge
The moon is low tonight

Night Heron deserves a top billing
I'm not sure Nobirds understand
It's not like years ago
 When they did reports
The recklessness of Flapline
We cant see Harry naked
These things they go away
Replaced by every day

Nights Heron,
remembering that night
September's coming soon
I'm pining for a dead Spoonbill
And what if there were two
Side by side in Dromantine Lake?
The bright light that is Garry McGarry
Could not describe a Night Heron

 Larry, I thought I knew you
 Larry, I cannot judge
 Larry, I thought you knew me
This one laughing quietly
Underneath my breath
Night Heron

 Nobirders all reflect
Every Nobirds Report a reminder
Night Heron
Deserves top billing
Deserves top billing
