Grey Heron

Went up to the loch and the young one was in the entrance overflow area. I gave her some fish but after a couple of bits she was not really interested. I walked slowly round the overflow area and she followed me. When I stopped she would stand very still then plunge her head into the water. I realised that she was finding her own food. After one plunge she turned to face me showing me a minnow she had caught (this is the photo) she then ate it and followed me round some more. I never fail to be amazed by this young bird. I will continue to take up a little fish but not as much as before. It was so good to see her hunt and extra special that she came over to see me without really wanting fed. 
The extra is when she first came over.
