This is one of six herons that flew in over our heads when we were watching the sealions being fed at Dublin Zoo. As soon as all the fish were gone they all took to the sky again and flew off, The keeper announced that the penguins would be getting fed in 15 mins, so we made our way to their enclosure, I could not believe my eyes, the six herons were there waiting.... They stole the show!
