GREY HERON AND PERCH

Shot from the top of the weir on the Billing Aquadrome marina, slight awkward angle etc.
It caught a Perch a bloody good sized specimen too, one I'd been happy to catch in my youth.
Despite the concrete top of the weir I really like the next image of it shielding it's catch...

  1. Stunning It's a damn pity it picked just there to stand. It is still the best Heron image I've seen.

    1. I was hoping it might move up the slope of the weir, gulped it in one go too.

    1. I'm thinking a young bird too. It's plumage did look good. It was quite compact too.
