This Little Egret (Egretta garzetta) was fishing in Meringo ICOLL this morning. We saw his darting movements from afar, as he walked through the shallow water, then raised his wings to create a shadow on the water and dashed quickly towards the fish. Sorry to say the photos showing these movements were not good enough to share! Can you see the fine feathers,ribbon-like head plumes this bird is wearing in the breading season? It was a gloriously sunny late morning, with perfect little surf and a gentle breeze. What a shame our visitors have gone home after three days of wind and rain!!
