Up, up and away ........

Its easy to dismiss Grey Herons as nothing really worthy of comment, but they are truly magnificent  birds on the wing and when it comes to feeding themselves very inventive as portrayed in the video link below, in this case a Blue Heron in the States.

A strike speed like a cobra.

Whilst their habitat is very much around rural water bodies they are increasingly to be found in urban areas as was the case with this image of a Heron taking off from a neighbours roof where it had been taking an interest in their ornamental fish pond !.
