October 2015 Grey Heron the speed of the strike. Awesome!

Watched this Grey Heron stalking through the water.  They are so still and patient sometimes.  Then the speed of the strike when they spot a fish is amazing.

Wow! The speed!

October 2015 Water Rail UK

I was talking to a guy in the hide and he was saying ah well at least I caught sight of the Water Rail.  You could only see its rear end in the reeds.  Just after he left it swam across the stretch of water and climbed up on this stick.  Couldn't help but smile!
