Egrets, I've had a few

Well actually one. Walking along Baldwins Lode, a nearby fenland drain, I saw a Little Egret. I see them from time to time but more commonly the much larger heron. The Little Egret's plumage is the purest of white and so it is easy to spot if there is one around. Unfortunately, I was too far off to catch a photograph of it and as I got nearer it took off.

  1. Groan!
    It's lovely to see them, but not often spotted around here. Last seen by me in the Abbey Gardens in BSE

    1. I think the dykes and waterways around here attract them inland.
