Spotted: Grey Heron by the sea

Grey Heron: Waiting for breakfast?
Grey Heron: Waiting for breakfast?

Grey Herons are not a particularly rare kind of birds- you can spot them near water habitats- lakes, marshes and in this case on the beach. I managed to photograph this one in Seychelles a few months ago. The bird was quite focused on the fishes swimming in the water and seemed to ignore tourists like us. I couldn’t tell if it was bothered by us- we managed to keep a distance and didn’t get too close.

We waited for a while to see if the heron would catch a fish and eat it in front of us- would have made for some nice photographs but that unfortunately didn’t happen. In the meantime we were getting hungry so had to head to the restaurant to get our grub.

      It was nice- I wonder if it still hangs out there every day.
