A heron moves with lightning speed as it stabs its beak into the water to catch a tasty fish for its dinner. Photographer Tony Mills, 66, was able to capture extraordinary photos of a little bittern, which is one of the smaller members of the heron family, fishing for food on the Isles of Scilly.

He waited nearby in the hope of seeing bird hunting behaviour in action and was thrilled when one of the birds flew in close to where he was sat - just five metres away.
