Grey herons nest by the UEA Broad; I've known about them for some time, and have occasionally seen them flying in the distance, but only recently have I managed to get close enough to take a photograph.
This juvenile heron was sitting by the River Yare, only a handful of meters away from the footpath. It was surprisingly unfazed by the people in close proximity - to my left as I took the photograph were a number of dog-walkers.
I saw a more reticent adult heron a little further along the river, partially concealed in reeds. It wasn't waiting around for a picture, though.
