Heron feeding at Saltaire Weir

Heron feeding at Saltaire Weir

I spent some time in Robert’s Park and Saltaire today. Towards the end of my visit I took my camera down near the fish pass on the weir. A Grey Heron was frequently dipping into the water and coming up with small fish – sometimes two at a time.

Often when you look at a Heron head on it looks very thin but as you can see it can widen its beak to fit more in. I also heard what I thought was a Peregrine Falcon so I went up to Salts Mill. There were plenty of pigeons and a Kestrel flying off towards Shipley Glen but no sight of a Peregrine. They have been spotted on the chimney.
