Great White Egret: First weekend back after the festivities and I was treated to a great, Great White. This huge bird came flying over the main scrape and then landed jut dead center of the pool where he then had a preen and took off, circled the reserve and landed for another quick preen and then flew off towards Burton Marsh.
I saw my first ever Great White Egret right here, from the reception hide, it was miles away right at the back of the reeds on it was a dull day and back then I wasn't wearing the RSPB T-shirt. This is one of the reasons I love BMW and working for the RSPB, you never know what’s going to drop in!
