Grey Heron - Ardea cinerea

Been a thoroughly wet day in my part of the UK today so been going through a few archive shots. These Grey Heron with a Pike are from October 2010. Biggest Pike I have ever seen a Heron swallow. Taken from a hide at Barton-upon-Humber. I clipped the wings on the first shot as I was using the Canon 500mm F4 with a 1.4 converter attached and by the time The lens locked on focus it was a touch too near. There are seven photos in all. Some of them were published in national newspapers and a national fishing

magazine.
