A Black-headed Gull in the background for size comparison.
Let me know when that tide's coming in won't you

While there have been a few Great White Egrets around locally recently (that I have failed to see) you can pretty much guarantee seeing the smaller Little Egret on the coast and even some reservoirs and lakes. On the Wirral coast I came across quite a few. Some were quite obliging too and flew and landed close by, just as this particular individual.

Hello! So great photos! The photo where the Little Egret is with the Black-headed gull is a good for comparison. I didn’t know that the Little Egret is so little.ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful weekend!

The little egret is absolutely beautiful.ReplyDelete
...that first image is wonderful!ReplyDelete
It sure is beautiful...love the pose with his foot up! Enjoy your weekend!ReplyDelete
I still amazes me that the Little Egret outnumbers the once common Grey Heron by a factor of 10-20/1, depending upon the time of year. Yet seemingly both occupy the same niche?ReplyDelete
You can really see its size with the gull as a comparison!ReplyDelete
Great photos. I like how you captured the waves of the water as well as the birds. Hope you are having a great Saturday.ReplyDelete
Nice! Egrets are so elegant!ReplyDelete
It's great when birds cooperate and allow us to photograph them. Love the egrets Adam!ReplyDelete
Sharing this with us at I'd Rather B Birdin is appreciated...thanks!
I love these birds but they are rare in Sweden. Great shots of the beauties :)ReplyDelete

I have seen a few of these birds in our area. I wonder if they are part of the migratory flock and have decided to stay behind.ReplyDelete

Usually, I never comment on blogs but your article is so convincing that I never stop myself to say something about it. You’re doing a great job Man. Best article I have ever readReplyDelete
Keep it up!
Such pretty birds, and you got great photos of them.ReplyDelete
I love shore birds..MichelleReplyDelete
I always like to see them (seemingly) shaking the water off their foot, like in the first picture. We see egrets here in Oregon and in Florida (but three different kinds there and only the little one here). i never tire of them.ReplyDelete
