Great White Egret, Grimley,Worcs.

Saturday 4th August 2012
In a desparate attempt to revive my flagging West Mids year list I ventured into Worcestershire yesterday to try and add Great White Egret to the list. Sat.nav found Grimley quite easily but there was no sign of the bird or any other birders on the former gravel workings. Eventually I noticed a few birders in the distance over on the far side and decided to join them. The Great White was just visible through the 'scope in a tree, but at a considerable distance. The group decided we might get better views from the other side but by the time we all got there the bird had moved again. At least this time the bird was on the shoreline and clearly visible feeding in the shallow water.
