Exminster Marsh (late post from yesterday 8-4-2015)

Futher to Mark's post i viewed the Great White Egret at 1246hrs from the viewing screen at the rear path alongside the railway with others but was distant feeding in the ditch near the back of the main lagoon and the shimmering from the heat-haze making it more difficult. I did manage to get some digiscope video before it took off at 1333hrs and flew around before dropping on other side of the lagoon towards the canal area with some flight recording at end of video. I rushed over that side hoping it would be better views but was again distant and obscured in another ditch with mostly just the neck and head showing.
