I had a telephone call yesterday evening just as Graham and I returned from collecting Richard from Barnstaple Railway Station. It was my nephew Ross.
There was an egret on the lake at Walland Farm. It had disappeared by the time we got down there, but there are some pictures (reproduced below). The big question is which one is it?
There are Little Egrets breeding on the Torridge Estuary, but this one looks to stocky. My best gues is that it is a Cattle Egret. But what do you think?
