The was one of the original tracks written by John Ellis on the Moth's album recorded in 1970 and pressed on vinyl by Deroy. The track is properly called Halfdan's Daughter but because of a CD version of the original album coming out in 1995 using this as its title track, much to the surprise of the band at the time, it has commonly been mistitled The Heron's Daughter after its opening line "The Heron is flying, low on the bay"
