This Little Egret was taking advantage of the fish stranded by the recent flooding of the River Wharfe near Wetherby. A few years back these birds would have attracted a small crowd of ‘twitchers’, but they seem to be quite well established in the UK now.

I am hoping that they will eventually get to us.
It would be interesting to know the expansion rate.
They have been seen in Dumfries and Galloway quite frequently but I have never heard of one around Langholm.
