Description:

A Heron next to the fishing lake in Eastville Park at about 7:30 am.
This pic was taken with my ancient phone. I was brought up in the countryside at a time when these birds were shot because they took trout from the chalk streams, so they generally tried to keep beyond gunshot range. I found this sight quite astonishing.
This observation exhausts my archive of bird photos.
