We were cycling along the canal towpath at lunchtime and came across this heron which was completely unafraid and let us get really close. Eventually, it flapped off, landed a short distance off and grabbed something from the water. We weren't sure what it was (a frog, I thought) till later we were able to look at the pictures. A bit of a shock! But then, I have eaten duck too. Just not killed it myself.
