Little Egrets sighted on the salt marsh

Got a phone call from Michele that she saw Little Egrets (you know the small white heron like birds?) shelter from the high tide in the Loakers. I drove past on my way home from the shopping, but I didn't see them. There were loads of white birds sheltering on the rocks, but from the way they moved, I think they were gulls. Lots of tiny waders flying in formation low over the sea as well. I wish I had binoculars to get a proper look because the egrets could have been hiding with the other birds and there could have been cormorants there as well. I will be going back tomorrow lunch time (when it is high tide) and I will bring my camera, so if I see anything, I will post it here.

Watch this space!

I hope you get those binoculars you wish for!

Perhaps you should specify a particular model - it might encourage others???

If you look on my Christmas list I have a link to a particular make that looks good, but a good binocular shop should be able to point you in the right direction
