Grey heron (Ardea cinerea) fishing at Aberdeen Harbour

Recently I witnessed a grey heron (Ardea cinerea) successfully fishing at the mouth of Aberdeen Harbour.


The heron was approximately 150 metres from me but I managed to take a series of images commencing from when the heron had caught the fish to ultimately swallowing it. Ideally I would have liked to have been closer but wildlife photography rarely gives you optimum conditions.
