Well it took a couple of goes but the long-staying, and often elusive, Cattle Egret is in the bag. Tried the long ride out yesterday morning but there was no sign and it got rather foggy. With the north bank road closed to through traffic it makes a lunchtime trip feasible so I headed out there today and saw it at close quarters a few minutes before it headed off in to the distance.
With Crane there and Black Terns at Ferry Meadows this morning I think it counts as a good birding day.
