Little Egret - Snettisham
In Norfolk when you see a big white bird take to the air or hunched on mudflats or marsh, your overwhelming desire is for this bird to be a Spoonbill. Alas, I'd say 99.9% of the time it is a Little Egret, much to frustration of my parents. Not so long ago Little Egrets were a good find, but they are doing rather well now and a common feature along the Norfolk coastline. I like to see them. There's something very intriguing about them that draws me to them. Fascinating to watch them patrol the waters and catch fish.

Beautiful bird! His feathers are so beautifully white!ReplyDelete
Ein stolzer Vogel !ReplyDelete
Sein weißes Federkleid und dazu die gelben Füße machen ihn ganz besonders attraktiv.
Es muss wunderbar sein, Vögel zu beobachten in deiner Region.
What a beautiful white bird! Maybe the spoonbill will be next!ReplyDelete
