Heron, Clydach Lock, 22.3.16

WP 22.3 (12)
Volunteers worked on the off bank under the watchful eye of a heron perched in a tree above them.  The heron was seen to fly down into the canal under the road over-bridge. Within half a minute it caught three fish. Not good news for the fish, but a positive indication of the water quality and the level of wildlife in the canal.
