The Grey heron,
Ardea cinerea, is one of the larger members of the heron family. It typically feeds on fish,
small mammals, amphibians, crustaceans, insects, even fledgling birds. In the breeding season the birds nest in colonies known as heronries formed in the canopy of trees. It is from these colonies that these birds are typically heard calling and bill snapping.
There are resident populations across Europe and Asia. Northern birds migrate
to southern Europe and northern Africa. This is a common species found in many environments but mostly associated with waterways.
