Young Heron With Wildflowers

I spent a lovely afternoon watching this heron which landed by the side of my local stretch of canal as I was walking my dog there. I was really surprised it didn't fly off when we approached - it just pretended to ignore us! .

 

Thanks to Izzy and Lolls for pointing out that this is a newly fledged young heron and more thanks to many of my other contacts for telling me that the yellow bush is broom and not gorse.
