Here is some information about the Heron:
The heron is an easily recognised, grey-backed bird, with long legs, a long, white neck, bright yellow bill and a black eyestripe that continues as long, drooping feathers down the neck. It flies with its long legs stretched out, but its neck pulled in.
A tall, often solitary bird, the grey heron is one of the UK's most familiar birds. It feeds mainly on fish, but also eats small mammals (even Moles!), waterbirds and Crayfish. It is often seen standing stock-still in the shallow waters of lakes, rivers and ponds, patiently hunting fish that flit about below the surface. It will visit gardens with ornamental ponds, looking for an easy meal.
