Grey heron (Ardea cinerea).
This year for the third time I visit Lake Kerkini in Greece.
Due to the repair of the locks, the water was very low and there was no more than 1/2 m of water under the boat’s keel.
But for all 9 times visiting the lake, this gray heron invariably stands on the harbor.
We even joke with Vasilios (owner of several pleasure boats) that she is the official photo model 🙂
So this photo model, the Gray Heron is a bird with great adaptive capacity, the only thing it needs is fish-rich and minimal peace of mind for humans.
Are there lakes with gray herons near your town?
