The Grey Heron is nearly 1 metre tall, with a wingspan of 1.5 to 2 metres.
The juveniles are just grey, whilst the adults also have a white head with a black stripe behind the eye.
They will eat fish, frogs, small mammals, reptiles and baby birds.
They fly with their necks bent.
Herons nest in trees in a group known as a heronry.
They sunbathe by standing bolt upright, tummies to the sun and wings half folded - looking like a flasher!
Someone once photographed a grey heron in Holland, catching and drowning a baby rabbit for his tea.
They stand so still that they can easily be missed.
