A warm sunny morning and a report last night from a birder friend that the young egrets were showing well in Owl Copse enticed me out with the 'big' lens.
Here are some of the shots taken. Sometimes we local birders fall into the trap of taking these bird for granted, nesting on our doorstep!
The following photos are a mix of egrets (and one Grey Heron) showing a variety of displays....food begging and aggression
These are just a few of the photos....I did get a bit carried away but it was interesting and entertaining!
Apparently the operation was to create an advert for a well known supermarket food chain
It all happens on Pagham Beach but it is usually a very peaceful location as no doubt this artist appreciates. Long may it continue that way!
