Some more from my back catalogue of unposted photos, also hopefully showing properly this time, thanks to TeeJay if they are.
Sad end for a fine mature Tench, it put up quite a struggle and it was a good 20 minutes before it was swallowed
Another fine specimen, a Roach this time, losing out to a Bittern at Minsmere. Sadly it walked off into the reeds to swallow it in private.
This Kingfisher took the best part 20 minutes before she finally swallowed this Roach after getting it nearly all the way down then bringing up again, bashing it about and trying again, at least 3 times .
This little "fishie" thought it had escaped from the Little Grebe, sadly for the Roach (or possibly Rudd), one more dive and it was all over.
Kingfishers with more appropriate sized fish, the second one a very quick dispatch
The end of another large fish, although small for a Pike.
The end of a small Flounder or Dab in the River Deben.
It's a hard life being a fish.

No afraid not, Trevor. I've taken the liberty of downloading your photo of the Heron and reposted it using the Browse dialogue box with dimensions set to 800x0. As you can see it is sharp so I'm not sure what you did.
Notwithstanding your uploading difficulties you've got a cracking set of photos. Your Panasonic G9 produces some excellent images when you view them in full resolution
