You Little Egret

As people left the Wassail on Sunday, there was a somewhat uncommon visitor in the mere - a Little Egret. It's fundamentally a small white heron in appearance and reasonably rare in the UK though becoming more popular year on year. You can find out more from the RSPB. A kingfisher also put on a good display, fishing happily at the top end of the mere (beneath the houses) whilst people watched from the bridge.
