Thanks for you responses. I can only assume there are many types of heron because when I search Heron on Google Images they appear to have long necks.  I can now change the description on my site from long legged bird to Heron.  Thanks again,  Smile

Kind Regards

They do have long necks, but usually stand with them "crooked" in. Their usual method of hunting is to stand in the shallows with neck "crooked", then straighten it very rapidly to spear their prey.

By the way, I have, on 3 occasions, seen herons dropping straight into mid-river and coming out with a fish, but whether the fish was already dead, I couldn't tell.

Regards, Ray.

That looks suspiciously like Harry, the grey heron that loiters around the Ferry Inn and Cafe at Horning

Ardea cinerea, grey heron. They often stand with their necks in an S shape and always fly with it retracted.
