Otmoor Weekend round up part 1 "Herons :1 Pike: 0"

At the first screen on Saturday morning we witnessed an extraordinary fishing exploit. A heron that was quietly stalking the shallows opposite us suddenly struck and impaled a large Pike. What ensued is superbly recorded by the following set of photographs taken by the excellent John Reynolds. More from the weekend later today.

It was an amazing wildlife sighting but I have to admit to feeling just a little squeamish seeing the herons throat twitching after the fish had been swallowed.
Thanks again to John for the pics. Bark
