Thanks Pete. Constructive criticism is always welcome. And I'm glad someone (knowledgeable or otherwise; in your case, certainly knowledgeable) has come back to this.
Agreed re ponds, but I've seen both species eating bugs, small mammals, worms, and amphibians (or so I recall).
Wendy S said:Herons are surprisingly agile in the air
Indeed they are. Nobody's fool a heron. One thinks "dinosaur" at one's peril, I imagine.
Personally, I've some odd combat matches (a Collared Dove beating up a Magpie (Tuscany); Crag Martins taking tail feathers from Sparrowhawks (local); ...), but have never seen a Grey Heron and a Common Buzzard mixing it up.
But we're here to learn, eh?
All the best -

You should visit a heronry Shazha. And take the experience to a new level of strange.

A few years ago I was intrigued to see ducks.
On a balcony.
In the middle of a large town.
So, I see what you mean.
