Grey Heron [Ardea cinerea]

Where to see them

Around any kind of water – garden ponds, lakes, rivers and even on estuaries. Sometimes, grey herons circle high up into the sky and can be mistaken for large birds of prey.

  2. Jest duża w stosunku do innych ptaków pływających po wodzie i ślicznie to wygląda. Pozdrawiam.
    It is high in relation to other birds floating on the water and it looks lovely. Yours.

  12. You have managed to get some more unusual shots of the Heron, not so run of the mill.
    All the best Gordon.

  18. He looks pretty much like our Great Blue heron. I wonder if they are different or we just name them differently. In any event, great pics of this majestic bird.
