Great White Egret

Great White Egret
Seamer Road Mere, Scarborough

Great surprise to read on Scarborough Birders Facebook Page, that there was an Egret at Seamer Road Mere, especially when I'd been on a hunt for on at Campfield Marsh, Cumbria, last week on the route up to Scotland. Though it was spotted it was miles away and only visible through telescopes.

So a pleasure to see the Egret 5 minutes from home and showing so well and flying 500 yards or so from a roost to a reed area to feed.

How long it will stay is anyone's guess as it is mobbed all the time by Herons and Swans and dog walkers.
