Grey Heron v Weasel













not much of a contest really but you have to feel for the weasel --- after about 5 minutes it went down the usual route followed by a quick drink and back to fishing -- don't mess with a heron's bill -- it was about 300m away so no good pics but worthy of a few poor images just for the interest

Wow, some really interesting behaviour there, it can't be often that Heron's take prey like that. Must have been quite unusual to watch

Like Joe said, WOW! Great pics, and well caught. Thank you for sharing.

Amazing shots, well spotted and captured. I wouldn't have thought it possible that a heron could have caught a weasel
