Beauty of nature – Grey herons spotted in Dubrovnik area

Written by  Jan 26, 2017

 

Nature is full of surprises! Today, at river Ombla grey herons were enjoying this beautiful, sunny day. These elegant birds made a perfect match with surroundings.

Grey heron with distinctive black ‘’hat’’ on their head can grow up to a meter and weighs around two kilograms. It feeds mostly on fish and frogs. In winter, when standing waters freeze, they usually search the nearest river and spend the winter there. Their breeding season begins in February and ends in late April.

Grey herons were spotted by the eye and the camera of Zeljko Tutnjevic.
