3 Little Egret closer to home.

Short Stories

Its' not been a very SEO winter, so news of returning birds up the coast enabled a post nightshift wander. Up to three in the air at once, parading in front of a steady stream of owlers'... Peregrine stationed on the usual spot too.

Other fodder on ofter - Pacific Diver (awake, contrary to recent reports), Slavonian Grebe, plenty of Great-crested Grebe in their finery, Scaups a many, and a couple of Avocet. 

Little Egret continue nearer home, with 4 on 5th March and 2 on 10th March.
