After a few weeks off I decided to revisit the dodder rive at Ballsbridge on a lovely sunny day. The recent work on the river bed and subsequent redevelopment is still disturbing the river. However the water level had risen from the low summer drought. It will be interesting to see how the winter rainfall affect the river's course.
As usual the native heron was present and I was lucky enough to capture him with a fish in his mouth. I witnessed many small fish leading clear of the water. With so much prey in the vicinity I wondered if a kingfisher would appear.
Soon the tell tale blue flash whizzed past me. I settled into a quiet stretch of the river near to what I hoped would be a good perch for the bird.
