Egrets and bitterns






With the water levels quite low the heron family were taking advantage of the shrinking pools to mop up whatever fish remained. The Great white egrets gave great photo opportunities this one was coming in to join the pair of little egrets at the salt pans in picture three. The Little bittern was seen skulking (as usual) in the water margins and finally the Black winged stilts were very tame.
