Grey Heron


Standing at one metre tall, these long-legged predatory birds are native to Europe, Africa and Asia. You can usually spot a grey heron standing stationary with its neck hunched near any kind of water, such as sea coasts... that’s them looking for food, such as fish and small birds!


With long legs, an orange-yellow beak and white and grey feathering with a black stripe on the head, these birds are unmistakable. Did you know, grey herons with brighter beaks indicate they’re breeding adults?
