The Egrets have landed…

21 Dec

Having reported the first Little Egret arriving in the village a couple of weeks ago, there are now four (maybe five) over wintering along the river. Today I saw 4 together with one demonstrating very dominant behaviour repeatedly trying to drive the other ones away. Some 20 minutes earlier I saw another one just beyond Stanbridge. This may be an additional one  or may have joined the others.

Many other migrating birds can be found around the village such as Fieldfare‘s and Redwing‘s – both members of the Thrush family. A number of Jays have been seen – often quite hard to spot as they are very nervous birds –
