In a bit of a flap.

Little Egrets, arguably, give one of the widest ranges of opportunity for photography in the United Kingdoms bird world.

They pose, they wade, they move gracefully and slowly, they strike out for their prey with great energy, they are elegant flyers and they are here in greater numbers year on year.

At Titchmarsh LNR we have had more than our fair share this year although numbers have dropped in recent months.

What a treat.


  1. I wonder how many Little Egrets there are stretched along the Nene Valley, I know of a small breeding colony which totals 10 individuals. They're a cracking bird, my girlfriend thought they were lecustic herons lol

  2. And very photogenic Doug ( I think you need to get your girlfriend out in the field more often ......., errrrr ......... ! if you know what I mean ).
