Grey heron

This was one greedy individual and a very good fisherman. I watched it wade around the large pond with the water up to its wings at times and suddenly lunge at and catch a large perch, he then flew to the shore and despatched  it with some well aimed stabs to the head and body and then swallowed it straight down. I expected it to retire to digest it's catch but no, it was back to the pool for another fish!
