I wasn’t the only one watching the Great crested grebe fishing at Cardiff Bay wetlands on that sublime autumn day. This juvenile Grey heron flew in half way through the fishing session and settled itself first on one side of the small pool, then on the other.

 

And the heron watched in awe as the grebe caught fish after fish so effortlessly and in such a short space of time.

I’m sure I detected a look of jealousy, and perhaps hunger, on that wide-eyed face!
