Letcombe Regis - 21 January


A return to nearby Letcombe Regis today in search of the Cattle Egret. This took some time to pin down, but eventually I got some photos of it on the lake off Warborough Road - through a very convenient hole in the large and mostly very solid hedge. It was with at least 2 Little Egrets. Previously, and later, it was in the nearby sheep field by the allotments but it never came close.

As usual, click on the captions to enlarge

Looking right!

In between looking for the egret, I came across these charming Stonechats on the nearby Downs:

Stonechat female or immature?
