Weirdo

This young heron perched on a tree did a really weird routine before flying off. First it cleaned itself up with its beak, then it kind of rolled its shoulders and shook up all its feathers before diving head first out of the willow tree and swooping up the River Dodder near the Dropping Well pub in Milltown, Dublin.
