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.

  2. Ein stolzer Vogel !
    Sein weißes Federkleid und dazu die gelben Füße machen ihn ganz besonders attraktiv.
    Es muss wunderbar sein, Vögel zu beobachten in deiner Region.
