I suspect the competition might be to spot where in the picture the heron is (having been photoshopped out), rather than where on the system the photo was taken. In the same vein as the "Spot the ball" competitions popular when I was a yoof.

so, in this case, when you smell fish you've found the heron?

There I was thinking that a canal forum "David Bellamy" might rush out of the foliage and say 

"it s a canal" !

 

 

I agree. It definitely looks like the heron (I've spotted it now) is standing in the canal.

 

Hope that helps someone win.

Now the question is was the bird photoshopped or not ?
