Witnessed an epic fight between a water snake and a grey heron in the marshland. The snake was not allowing the bird to grip it with its beak and instead wrapped itself around its neck. The heron took to flight with the snake still around its neck and trying to get its mouth to bite the bird; At some point the heron managed to grip the snake by its head and spent a considerable time thrashing it about to kill and then devour it while still alive.
