‘all white

On tour at Hickling the other week a large Egret flew up out of the reedbed. The yellow bill and completely black legs immediately confirmed it as a Great White. They bred in Norfolk last year. I suspect with the number we have around us the event will be repeated and become the norm.

Rarities

Reared for part of my time as a boy on a dairy farm, a trip into the broads the other day to see some cattle was a rare treat. Rare breed Park Whites. Beautiful bovines with beautiful faces. Brought back from near extinction by the rare breeds survival trust.

Of course it was just coincidental there was a Cattle Egret among them ;0)

Up to three reported in the area gives hope they may stay and breed. This one was stick carrying for some time as I watched it. The last time I saw one do that was within an Egret breeding colony in the Camargue .
