Grey Heron at Queen Marshes

This grey heron appears to be resident at Queen Marsh, Dartington.

I’ve seen it there quite frequently all winter. Along with a Little Egret.

Lugubrious is how you would describe grey herons.

Prone to patiently waiting, waiting, waiting; before pronging themselves decisively forward – headfirst onto a flickery fish.
