GREY HERON

The Grey Heron is a long legged, long necked wading bird of the Heron family, the Grey Heron is quite different to smaller waders in terms of nesting in that it nests in Heronries among other Herons high up in the tops of trees.   The Grey Heron is a common bird and its main body is grey with a white neck with black streaks up the front of it.  There is a black crown stripe at the top of the head and a beak which is yellow apart from early spring where it goes a brighter orange colour.  There are currently 14,000 pairs breeding in the UK and these birds can be found in all kinds of watersides throughout the UK.  We even get the odd Grey Heron flying through the garden from time to time.
