Grey Heron feeding

Lena Chow‘s video clip shows a Grey Heron (Ardea cinerea) going about its daily business of getting dinner…

“I did a quick search of the BESG website, and there are no videos of a fishing Grey Heron. It was observed in an earlier post LINK that the Grey Heron seemed to take sips of water after swallowing a fish, and this can be seen (a few times) in this video. At least that’s what I think it is doing,” wrote Lena.

    I’ve wondered before, and this video reminds me of the question, do egrets and herons eat water bugs, or are those too small for them to bother with?
