This is fast becoming a nature diary! A few years ago I was astonished to see a pair of egrets on a tree overlooking the pond in the village. I thought I must be mistaken, but no, little egrets are now living in Britain.
Yesterday I was at the computer, and something white caught my eye. Under the hawthorn, at the edge of the wetland, shining in the light of the setting sun was a beautiful little egret. It stayed long enough to probe between the matted reeds, and then it flew off. (image above from here)
