Secondly we have the Grey heron, a much larger bird which has an almost Regal posture. This bird on the Marazion Marshes was moving through the water and not making a ripple, stopping for long periods and letting it's prey come within striking distance. Suddenly striking into the water bringing a fish or frog, or maybe a newt up in its powerful bill. This predator catches large prey, many a time I have seen them catch really big flatfish in the estuaries , and in freshwater Reservoirs Trout that any fisherman would be proud of. Normally in these situations a fearsome struggle ensues from which there is always one victor " The Grey Heron" a King amongst hunters.
