Egret Fest - Leighton Moss RSPB, Lancs - 3rd Sept 2007

It simply wasn't possible to obtain better views of the Great White Egret as it fed as close to the Allen Hide as it could get, in the company of several Little Egrets. Wonderful! At least 16 Little Egrets were present plus 1 juv Curlew Sandpiper, 8 Dunlin, 3 juv Ruff, c200 Black-tailed Godwit, 8 Greenshank, c300 Redshank, 2 Snipe, Pintail, Teal, Wigeon and a Peregrine.
