Great White Egret, RSPB Middleton Lakes

Great white egrets are now seen more frequently in the UK. After our visit to Chasewater to see the velvet scoter, we headed to RSPB Middleton Lakes in hope of seeing two great white egrets, a bird I have never seen before. After a good walk, we spotted them just before the sun set. Great white egrets are very similar to little egrets but much larger, a similar size the grey heron with similar fishing techniques.
