Cattle Egrets for New Year's Day!

It's been raining off and on all day here in East Norfolk, but a brief pause in the showers was all the excuse we needed to drive out to Halvergate for a look at the Cattle Egrets.

Linda and I were the original finders of these exotic little herons a week before Christmas: at the time three were hunched up against the cold and wind, so only one showed its characteristic bare-part colouration. Erring on the cautious side, I blogged them as a Cattle and three Littles. Quite ironic that I had several e-mails suggesting I '...might have been mistaken!' Eventually Steve Smith connected and then everyone was all over them like a rash!

It's really good that they've stuck around for people to see- we bumped into Lee Evans when we visited at 11.00 am! That guy must really love his birds (and year list!) to visit Norfolk in this weather!
