Little Egret

The Little Egret is something of a recent success story. It first appeared in the UK in significant numbers as recently as the late 1980s and – according to the RSPB – first bred in Dorset in only 1996. It remains on the Amber List as a rare breeding species. This one was perched above a small river in what I believe to be one of Norfolk's most beautiful wildlife corridors – the Glaven Valley. Two woodpigeon were sharing the vantage point and a Barn Owl was quartering the rough grassland either side of the river.
