Scrapy Heron

I'm used to seeing herons looking sleek, prim and proper. I guess beach herons look more like beach bums... a bit scrapy and wind blown.

What you see in the water and on the rocks is not oil slick, but kelp.

  9. Certainly a very care-worn burd -- love the kelp -- it is quite healthy food apart from the salt.
