Great White Egret, River Ribble

I had about 20 minutes spare on my way to Clitheroe this morning and took a chance on the Great White Egret still being close to the bridge at Mitton. It had being located earlier in the day by Mike Watson. I parked up and saw it straight away from the road as it was in the middle of a field.

A small group of birders were already watching from the public footpath behind the Aspinall Arms, so I joined them for the few minutes I had available.

It was distant but I managed this record shot of the bird. There are much better images on other local birders blogs. See Mike Watson's Diary and Bill Aspins Birding blog.
