Heron, hidden

I'm no bird watcher, or twitcher, in any respect. However - I'm sure it's fairly uncommon to be able to walk so close to a shy creature like this, in a public park, and leisurely take pictures

The heron is described as "unmistakeable: tall, with long legs, a long beak and grey, black and white feathering"  They can apparently stand with their neck stretched out... looking for food. But there's no doubt that they also stand hunched down with their neck bent over their chest.
