Venus Pool - Cattle Egret!!!

What a homecoming! Firstly the Rock Thrush had waited for me and now my phone was alerting me to a small yellow billed Egret present at VP!! Thanks Brian Lyon and well done, it was indeed a Cattle Egret and apart from being a bit of a County unblocker for some, a reserve 'first' for everyone!!

It wasn't doing much, just sat on one of the islands in front of the North hide...


Eventually it decided to go walkabout...


Attempting to conceal itself behind the odd post?


Before marching on...







And quite surprising to see it getting on well with the locals!


The only birds which seemed to take exception were the Geese!


 It was apt to take flight every now and then but always returned to one of the islands!




You beauty...



Struggling to cough a pellet?


And there's more to come!
