The Grey Heron ( Ardea cinrea) 90 - 98 cm

It's always a pleasure to see the Grey Heron take-off, in-flight & landing. This big bird is so graceful and 'light' when in-flight that it belies it's large size and weight. The acrobatic agility of a single bird and the 'flight formation' when flying as a flock is a wonderful sight to watch.

Their natural habitat is around wetlands and mangrove forest and swarms of up to 1000 meters above sea level.

Here are 4 sequential photos of the Grey Heron doing it's flight-landing routine.


Thanks for dropping by! Cheers!
