The Great White Egret

Even up to ten years ago it was impossible to ever imagine a Great White Egret appearing locally. So it was a surprise when one appeared recently at Hollingworth Lake and stayed for more than ten days.
Early one morning I went along to have a look at the Egret as it made the most of the low water-levels. Unfortunately I was looking into the rising sunlight but it worked to my advantage as the Egret was beautifully back-lit as it caught its fish.
