We proceeded to watch this chap for the next 45 minutes as he picked his way through the vegetation occasionally plunging his head into the water and nearly every time getting hold of a small fish.
The amazing thing about this experience was that this all occured in the middle of an extremely busy town park that was absolutely packed with people. It was a warm afternoon and everyone was out n' about but the Heron was more intent on fishing. Clearly Heron's are fairly used to people and are normally fairly tame, especially juvenile birds but this guy was 4ft away from us and allowed us into his world, we didn't just spot a Heron on a river bank or see one flying over a resevoir, we sat right next to him and just watched him get on with his every day life! Amazing!
