Heron Hunting Fish

Couple of days ago i went to Endcliff park here in Sheffield to watch if the Mandarin duck was there.
The Mandarin duck is originally from Asia but specimens frequently escaped from collections, and in the 20th century a large feral population was established in Great Britain.
However the Mandarin wasnt there, but instead a grey heron landed on the pond and started to hunt fish. It`s fun to watch them hunting, they are so incredibly fast and precise.

This weekend, I will go to the Snowdonia Natioanl Park, but i will return on monday.
See u :)
