Amazing what a bit of sun does

No sign of the Little Egret or Green Sandpiper at Ewelme but House Sparrows and Starlings investigating the nest boxes at home.

Another or the same?

Thursday 5 February 2014

Little Egret seen in tree along St Helen's Avenue in Benson. So was it the Ewelme bird or a different one? Guess I'll never know. Female Blackcap still ruling the roost in the garden.

Little Egret

Pictures of the Little Egret on the Ewelme Watercress Beds this morning.

Can't quite make out the species of fish but probably a Bullhead as they are the commonest on the beds.

At Last!

1st sighting of a Little Egret on the Ewelme Watercress Beds since January 2011. Shame the visitors were watching the film at the time!
