Sheepwash

4/08/10
the whole reason the blog has got behind is because i have been waiting upon my friend to give me some images of the little egret that i took on his camera, i now have those photos, but have got fed up at my nans house so, and the photos are on my home computer so, no photos again :-D
Entering the park from the main enterance, we walked the path and i was quickly onto a flock of 'small birds', warblers infact, the overnight rain had dropped some birds, 2 LESSER WHITETHROAT, 2 willow warbler and 'millions' of chiffchaff, after sifting the flock we went for the egret.
we checked the main lake with just the usual stuff noted but a commonsand was new in, so down the river,


and there it was,

sitting near the bridge near the marshy pools the bird was feeding, and this is where i took photos of it landed and in flight, after being flushed by a dog walker,
(imagine a picture of a flying LITTLE EGRET), the bird had been present for 7+ days,


4 common tern- 2 ad, 2 juv were on the chemical pool, but despite there being big numbers of yellow legged gulls at stubbers green, non were in the flock
