Bowthorpe Marsh Egrets, 27 January 2016

With a little time before an opticians appointment today I popped in to Bowthorpe Marsh on the west side of Norwich this morning. Initially it looked like the Great White Egret was missing so I donned my boots and went for a splosh across the marsh. The bird was found tucked away in a corner c300 yards west of Colney Church, presumably keeping a low profile due to the dog walkers that use the place every day! It gave some nice views and also flew up and down a couple of times. 3 Little Egrets were also about and a couple of fly-over Siskins was about it.
