Local Heron and an eel.
The Eel has recently suffered dramatic declines and is a protected species. It is famous for its mammoth migration from its freshwater home to the Sargasso Sea where it breeds. I have regularly seen eels being taken by Herons at Titchfield Nature Reserve. I have also found some on the beach.
Length: up to 1m
Average Lifespan: 15-70 years

Nature at its clearest (without favoring either the eel or the heron) – once in Cyprus a pelican caught and ate a pigeon. In nature, it is pure business. Live and let die.

An eel, a precarious trip “down the hatch” sometimes.
