Stunning action flight image of the two juveniles, Shalu. Were they honing their fighting techniques, or just playing?

Very nicely captured incoming shot, Glyn. There appears to be some kind of clips perhaps on his wings. It's easiest to see on the right wing. What are these for?

Wow...what a fantastic series, Sid. It seems so unusual for a heron to catch fish like that.:eek:

Hi Mike, they are identification tags.

These birds have been re-introduced to parts of the UK having almost become extinct, so its important to monitor their progress.

From just a few pairs 50 years ago, the current UK population now stands at an estimated 1800 breeding pairs.

Cheers Mike, this particular bird seems to have learnt that this is a valid technique and has been seen doing it a few times now.

Thanks Chuck, it's a european eel, endagered species, but seems to be plenty here! :)
