Re: Cattle Egret Steart WWT

Cattle egret present again today around 3pm on the stockland marshes but very mobile as it was flushed several times by a farm quad bike. Moved around the fields then ended up in the area adjacent to the farm buildings near some hay bales. A flock of fieldfare also in the area. Nice views of a short eared owl earlier on in the day along wall common hunting in the fog.

Re: Cattle Egret Steart WWT

Agreed Cattle Egret was very difficult to locate, not sure if that was you, Angela, I spoke to on the marshes this afternoon.

Also, a number of SEOs (2 or 3) on Wall Common in the fading evening light and heavy fog. One particular bird is beautiful with a light brown head and chest but very dark wings and tail.
