feeding, preening, squabbling
One of 2 Little Egret flew past, but approaching
First signs of the bird came as it flew in from the west, and landed among a small flock of sheep just beyond a ridge in the field. We had to relocate to get a chance of seeing it again, which we did but the view wasn't brilliant. Returning to the footpath, it took to the wing and in full view and 'calling' landed in the next field.
Yes Blue JN been commuting between France, Abbotsbury and Radipole since I first saw her in Sept 2007. Ringed by Alain Caizergues at Saint Suzanne department 53 France 17/07/2007. Alain is on David’s site but time has changed the colour more green than blue, which is why you couldn't find her. You will also find me on Dirks site for our local colour ringed water birds. Another site worth looking at is Marco Basso’s photo guide, link on Dirks c-r birding site. C-r birding is being up dated and all the projects are when Dirk has time being moved to a new site.
Hows that for service….??????
PS I have fitted nasal saddles in France with Alain.
