Young heron which seemed to be looking out for fish in the canal by Castlecroft Bridge, seemingly oblivious to an angler just the other side of the bridge. Eventually the bird was disturbed by the approach of a still-distant cyclist. It took flight, circled round, and headed for the less disturbed Smestow.
