Heron

This grey heron is a youngster: the black feathers on the head are just beginning to show signs of becoming the adult crest. Recently, it has seemed to prefer to fish just downstream of the Wightwick Mill lock on the Staffs and Worcs canal.

Lots of activity from dog-walkers, joggers, walkers and a steady stream of narrowboats, but the bird was still fishing from the towpath bank until someone came that little bit too close.
