A big fisher

Day 2 of the fishers of Sai Kung. After my blog on the 5th March about the Kite's scavenging in the harbour, I thought i better post some real fishers, so over the next 4 days we will look at Sai Kung denizens fishing near the main pier (they are there most days, but particularly on Sunday). Now we move on to the perhaps the largest bird you may see near the pier (or in Hong Kong for that matter)...the Grey Heron. This large bird can also fish "on the wing" as seen here, but lacks the grace and elegance of the Egrets in flight. but it can take quite large prey, which it secures in its beak, before finding a safe perch to eat its unlucky prey.
