(r) Egrets? I've had a few...

Made a mistake by not going out until the afternoon today, by which time the sun had been immersed by a huge heavy rain cloud, and all the decent light had gone for the day. Still, the two main species seen on the trip out were pretty good by Northumberland standards, with the great white egret at Warkworth Lane (record shot below, the light killed this photo... if I'd got my skates on I could have faired better at the Budge field...) and the adult common crane remaining just north of Eshott.

News of a black-throated thrush in Cleveland was tempting... maybe Northumberland will score too?
