Wild side with Professor Ian D Rotherham
Gill Robinson reported some heron sightings. “After reading the Saturday Star Wildside, I thought I would tell you of the many times we see herons around Queens Road, Sheffield 2. They regularly swoop behind Graham Plumbers Merchant and perch on the roof. Last year I was lucky enough to see one on the roof of a terrace house on nearby Lancing Road, as I got ready for work one morning. It stayed quite a while. Lately the arrival of the large gulls in the area means a second glance sometimes to see if it is the heron or a gull. Living in such a busy area, we are lucky to see such things.”
