Little Egret

Finally I got slightly closer to a little egret.

But it didn't take long for it to fly away. They seem to be very timid birds.

Actually, first thing in the morning we went for a walk along the river towards Piddinhoe and I saw a grey heron! I think it's the first time I've seen a grey heron in the wild. And I didn't have a proper camera with me! I was kicking myself. From this on I will always take my 400mm lens with me when walking between home and Piddinghoe... I want to get photos of that magnificent bird.

Back on Castle Hill, the sea was almost dead calm.

Teasels have all gone brown now.
