Buzzard and Heron

I have frequently seen this heron on the Water of Leith at Canonmills or at Warriston.  There is also a heron, maybe the same one, that sometimes visits the Royal Botanic Gardens nearby at Inverleith.

This photo was taken as a buzzard chased the heron above the Water of Leith, close to the B&Q store at Warriston.

Here is another photo of the chase.

Here is a photo of the heron taken from the Warriston Road bridge over the Water of Leith the following day.
