Clydach Brook Visitor

When crossing the bridge from Commercial Road to Clydach Avenue we saw this visitor to the Clydach Brook.

It seems the Grey Heron is a regular visitor to Resolven.

The grey heron was first described by the Swedish naturalist Carl Linnaeus in 1758 and gave it the name Ardea cinerea.

It is closely related and similar to the North American great blue heron which is larger.

As we rushed to get under cover from a thunder storm and hail shower the heron was not bothered.
