Resident Egret?

A walk by the estuary at Alnmouth  once again gave good views of what appears to be a resident Little Egret.

I first noticed it in early November and have seen it regularly since that time.

This afternoon, it was feeding voraciously employing a familiar technique.

It raises one of its large, bright yellow feet to disturb the surface of the water, then its rapier bill quickly skewers a fishy victim.

  1. One day they will breed in the county. Alnmouth or Warkworth are as good a place as any...
