Hangin with your relatives…..

6 Apr

We had the pleasure of a number of Little Egrets overwintering around the village and with the arrival of spring all bar one have left, probably for the coast.

There is just one remaining Little Egret who seems to have hooked up with one of our local Heron’s – see below:

Juz hangin with your buds...

I was recently advised that there are now more Little Egrets in the UK than there are Grey Herons. This came from a very authoritative source – Steve Piotrowski who lead a British Trust for Ornithology course I recently attended. This was quite a surprising insight..
