Slightly smaller but much rarer than the little egret, cattle egrets are visiting the UK in increasing numbers. They often spend time close to livestock and grab insects and worms that their hooves disturb. Cattle egrets have yellow or greyish legs and a yellow beak, compared to the black legs (with yellow feet) and black beak of the little egret.
Spotted this one,apparently one of only two over here in jersey at the moment,in a field on my way home from work yesterday.

ISO400 Raw capture (Handheld leaning out of car window)

Best viewed large....Thanks for lookin................

Great capture Tony, all too many times people just see them and think its a little Egret. Great exposure on the whites
Well captured

Fantastic capture, Tony. Indeed a rare chance but as you say Cattle Egrets are being seen a little more now - fingers crossed for a take of my own.
