At the Fen again: Great White Egret

With the weather for the next few days scheduled to be appalling, I rose early and took a walk around the two Fens: Upton first, then Strumpshaw.

Upton was disappointing: too cool and wet for many of the larger odonata (although I did see Brown, Southern and Migrant Hawkers in singles!) A couple of nice Emerald Damsels, a colourful beetle, a Fox and a possible Osprey made up the rest of the list.

Strumpshaw was a little better, with 'thirds' of the GWE preening on the spit, as well as two Little Egrets, a Hobby, a Great Spotted Woodie, as well as one of the regular Little Owls in silhouette!
