Reabrook estate - Little Egret

There have been spasmodic reports of a Little Egret working the Rea Brook in Shrewsbury this Winter and I was well placed for the most recent (cheers Mike!!)

I hate shooting down on a bird but this was the view from the footpath overlooking the brook!

A lower angle helps?

Head on I could see there was something nasty going on around the joint of the left leg!

I'm not sure you want to see this but the Egret didn't seem unduly distressed!
