Cattle Egret, take two...
Thought I'd check to see if the Cattle Egret was still hanging out near Tatworth this morning and an early visit paid off. Not only was it still there but this time it was a bit closer, around 70m away at the closest point. It looks quite happy so maybe it (and the accompanying Little Egrets) will stay for a while longer. While I was there the landowner turned up and flushed them when he entered the field to move a boundary fence but I'm sure they would have come back as soon as he went.
