I've been to Newton Marsh early morning and seen a heron fishing the pools but ever time I got within 100yds it was off.I decided on different tactics and drove past the heron returning slowly as one of the large trucks overtook me.It worked and I was in position  to capture images of the heron as it fished for sticklebacks,it seems such a lot of effort for such a large bird to capture prey so small I saw it catch 4 fish in a twenty minute spell.Well there's a lot of lapwing chicks about and I'm sure a few will end up down the herons neck.I've posted a few images of the heron as it fished for its breakfast and was back home for 7.30 am for mine.

Brilliant as ever Martin, and back home for breakfast b 7.30am, sounds good to me.

Your'e absolutely right re the Heron and the Lapwing chicks if it catches sight of them, nature in the raw.
