The Grey Heron is a common sight along the Bay East skyline promenade and I often spot it on the rip-rap wall. The plumage colour is greyish and blends in well with the granite colour of the wall and I usually noticed it only when it flew out into the water away from the rock bund when the buggy drove past the area. There must be at least a pair there.

Anyway, it is not often that I can manage to take photos of this big but shy bird, especially when it is in flight.
