Heron taking flight, Bilbrook

Heron taking flight, Bilbrook

Heron which was fishing, thigh-deep on the far side of the canal just outside Bilbrook. I came along the towpath, so it took flight, landing a little further along. As I got another hundred yards further forward, it once again decided I was too close, taking off once again, this time deserting the canal, probably for the nearby Penk.
