I received a call on Sunday from a friend asking me if I could come down the harbour as he had seen a bird that he was not sure about.
When I arrived I saw a Little Egret in the harbour feeding. This is a first for me in the harbour. We do get them around the area but in the harbour was a nice little tick for a Sunday morning.
We watched it for a good while and it was twisting and stamping its feet in the shallow waters around the rocks, then all of a sudden it grabbed something to eat. Great to watch.
They are beautiful birds and it brightened up a gloomy Sunday morning.
