    Thanks, I'm glad you liked it. The eel did put up a fight. As I noted above, the heron even dropped it a few times. But in the end, the eel was swallowed by the heron. Good question about whether the birds gullet could be damaged but sorry, I don't know the answer to that.

    Nice blog and great photos! That looks like a big eel she caught here!

    So the heron managed the struggle and gulp the long eel all the way down okay? Does the eel put up a good fight, I wonder if it stands any slim chance of damaging (biting, wriggling etc.) the bird’s elastic gullet or even escaping it if eaten in that condition?! Sorry for all the questions, but thanks for the feedback/information! 😉
