Hunter On The Marsh

I have been watching this grey heron now for about 5 hours in four visits, and he has never caught anything. Today he was to show off his hunting skills and just to prove it was no  fluke he did it twice. He must think it is easier than fishing!


Concentrating on the prey

Strike one a vole

Strike two a rat (I think)
