A huge bird on the towpath

The wingspan on this thing must have been about 6 feet!

That's a Heron - plenty of them along the canal.

Very wary birds so to get a good close-up remember not to scare them with any sudden movements.

Watching them fish is a joy, as they concentrate with their heads bowed ready to pierce the water like a dart!
