Walking along by the side of the river in Bedford I happened to spot this little fellah. Initially I almost missed it cos I thought it was a branch sticking up out of the water. But then it moved! Wow!

Never seen one like this before, not along there anyway, so I was real pleased to capture it, even though the pic may leave something to be desired technically speaking.

Just wish I knew a bit more about birds cos I haven't got a clue what he/she is. Heron? Crane? Dunno!
