Cattle Egret numbers on the rise Braunton Marsh

Heading out around the Great Field this evening hoping to spot some of the Cattle Egret recently reported by Rob & Jon we were rewarded with views of eleven! including this confiding adult which sat calmly for its portrait taken from the car. As their name suggests...they were in a field with grazing cows!
