Heron eating an eel.

I was lucky enough to witness this Heron eat a number of eels as i watched from the new viewing platform in Goldcliff. The light was poor and the cloud cover was persistent because there was no wind but this had the advantage of making the water mirror-like. The quality of the last few photos is a bit ropey but i've included them because they convey the struggle the Heron had actually swallowing the slippery eel.
