Little Egret

I seem to be coming across these guys quite a lot recently. They are doing extremely well in this country. There was a time not so long ago when they were pretty infrequent, rare in fact. Thankfully they seem to be positively thriving, especially in the South of the country. This one below was seen in Norfolk, but I also saw four last weekend at my parent's in Essex. These were never seen when I was growing up, but now a visit doesn't go by without seeing at least one.

That foot reminds me of a rattan cane umbrella handle.

  7. A lovely flight shot Adam. Little Egrets are more numerous than Grey Herons around here!

  9. Good to see them coming back again. Can you think of any environmental changes that may have contributed to that?
