Great White Egret

Monday 28th May 2007
After a day of continual rain yesterday, things looked a bit brighter this morning. News of a Great White Egret at Saul Warth this morning led to a fruitless trip. It had moved to the 100-acre, and after arriving there, further reports suggested it had flown back towards Saul!
I decided to give it another go this evening down at Green Lane and was rewarded by first a brief glimpse on the 100-acre and then a longer view as it took to the air with a Little Egret before landing again, and out of sight. Also, a Cetti's Warbler was calling between Green Lane and the canal, and a Common Tern flew along the canal. The Great White Egret was present until 6.30pm at least. View only from the viewing platform or the viewing gate in Green Lane, there is strictly no unguided access to the fields.


I hope that you get lucky and find what you are looking for. I rather enjoy the photographs.

Thanks, I didn't get a long enough view of the Great White Egret to get the camera on it though.
