Grey Heron | Joel Walley Wildlife Photography
Grey Heron (Ardea cinerea), are a large and slender bird which are highly associated with water where they stay motionless feeding on passing fish, amphibians and invertebrates. In flight Herons are unmistakable with long, broad wings (often well over 1.5m) and legs trailing behind. Herons also feed on small mammals, and this individual was seen in an upland area away from open water hunting for voles.
