Little Egret looking for a snack
This is a Little Egret (Egretta garzetta), a bird that is becoming more common along the South coast of England. It is standing in the water on the slower flowing inside of the bend on the River Avon. It is looking upstream, waiting for the opportunity to nab a fish as it glides down with the current. We stopped and watched for a few minutes but there were no pickings, but it remained still and alert for the whole time.
