Flying Egret

By Silverzone
Whilest walking the Exe River Estuary, I stumbled upon an nesting colony of Egrets. The trees that they were nesting in were too far from the perimeter fence to photograph clearly but I have added view 2 and 3 to show the environment they were in. They shared the trees with nesting herons and I spent a good deal of time watching their interactions and nestbuilding. It was pure luck that this Egret granted me a fly past! Thanks for looking, Sylvia
