South Milton 10 Sept

Late news: only just received of a sighting of a Great White Egret at c1.00pm on Thurs 10 September as sadly Peter's computer had a glitch and didn't send the message.

"Half way along the DBWPS path by the reed bed I saw an egret labouring upstream against the fresh east wind. It passed me slowly at a 100 yards or so only just above the reed tops. I said out loud "It's got a yellow bill!" It was in binocular view about a minute before it passed out of sight. The bill was clearly long and dagger-like. The other noticeable thing was its noticeably long trailing legs and feet, all black".
