Grey Heron - These large grey birds (90 cm) spend long periods standing still in the water, waiting patiently for prey to swim within range of attack from a lightning fast lunge of the bill. They are also know to visit garden ponds in search of easy pickings! Images taken in Co. Sligo and Attenborough Nature reserve Nottinghamshire.
