Last weekend I visited Roding Valley nature reserve several times and saw at least two each time, and four on my first visit. I could stand and watch them all day as they shuffle their feet on the stony river bed and then pounce to catch their prey. All the while, keeping an air of elegance about themselves.
Leaving the roost site.
I still remember the first time I saw a wild. Beautiful captures.ReplyDelete
They are a handsome bird, but I haven't knowingly seen one. Maybe if they are getting more common, it won't be long before I see one in Birmingham.ReplyDelete
Wonderful captures of the Little Egret.ReplyDelete
wow, that is beautiful images of the Little egret :)ReplyDelete
It's certainly a species to have made a great comeback Adam. Great photogenic subject matter, as you show us.ReplyDelete
It looks very graceful and aerodynamic #AnimalTalesReplyDelete
Magnificent airborne captures Adam - yes, these sure are an elegant species. Thanks for sharing (and for dropping by)ReplyDelete
Great photos of the Little Egret. They are a beautiful bird.ReplyDelete
I do love Egrets! They are so graceful on land and in flight.ReplyDelete
We've seen them at the Barnes Wetland Centre, when we visited. They're beautiful birds!ReplyDelete
I agree with you on how much more common little egrets have become ... and I still love seeing them as they seem more exotic than herons! #AnimalTalesReplyDelete
PS - I meant to say that next week #AnimalTAles will be hosted by Karen at http://themadhouseofcatsandbabies.com/ReplyDelete
