The Grey Heron ( ardea cinerea )
Went to the local hide today with the intention of bagging a Redshank but finished instead getting involved with a brute of a Heron catching a Perch.These birds use their beaks to fantastic effect and if you look carefully you will see that he has speared the fish right through. The last shot shows the killer getting away as fast as he could.

My grateful and appreciative thanks for all views/comments,votes on the last Heron. Particular thanks to Steve ( Sparrowhawk ) and Ina ( Gezina ) for their User Awards.

I hope large view will be worth your time.

Hi Ron, sorry I'm late coming in here. What more can I add that hasn't already been said, I think 9 user awards just about sums it up and I would add mine also if it were available, I'm very tempted to say a lot more but have seen and heard far too much about 'team awards' already. The endless discussions and forums just go nowhere and it's best not to bite the bait IMHO, a wonderful set my friend,

Geoff.
