Little Egret

The Little Egret is a beautiful bird, a migrant that 10 years ago would cause a stir, but now is spreading naturally north, and can be easily seen from South Wales to Norfolk, bringing pleasure to a lot of birders when it unexpectantly lands on their patch.
In my opinion it is a better, more graceful version of the Heron, and I hope it spreads more over the country. Here is a picture that I have drawn of one, paintings never been my strongpoint!
 Good Luck out there, Gornal Birder.


  1. Nice Picture.

    I remeber seeing my first Little Egret in the late 90's in Norfolk...they were scarce back then. Now they are regularly seen in the midlands during the summer birds

  2. My first was at Sheepwash this year, brilliant and beautiful!
