I did not realise how rare Great White Egrets were in the UK (N. Devon). I first spotted it Feb 2017 and several times throughout the year. It has been seen hanging out with the local herons up in the canopy.  First spotted this year at the end of January (2018).  Not a particularly good photo, taken from a long distance with a compact with long range zoom. You can see all the identifying features even its eye colour.
