A Cattle Egret is at Steart Marshes WWT in the freshwater grazing area of Stockland Marsh. From the car park do not cross the road to the main part of the reserve, but instead take the signed permissive path. The bird was in the westernmost fields of the site, best viewed from the last bridge on the path.
Cattle Egret still present in the same area today. Also an immature Spoonbill dropped in to Otterhampton Marshes at midday before quickly moving to the main intertidal area where it spent the rest of the afternoon feeding.
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.
