Teigngrace- Cattle Egrets

On the way back from a successful trip to East Devon for the 2 Glossy Ibis at Black Hole Marsh, Seaton which were viewable distantly from the hide and then the superb Pallas's Warbler at the Bristol School Camp entrance, Gore Lane, Exmouth which showed pretty much non stop from 12.25 to 12.55pm, news came through of a Cattle Egret at Teigngrace at 12.30pm. On arrival, a quick scan and there were in fact 2 Cattle Egrets and 2 Little Egrets. They are in the flooded field at the junction of Teigngrace Road and Exeter Road, 100 yards south of Blatchford Farm. Many thanks to the finder of the first Cattle Egret for getting the news out so quickly.
