Cattle Egret

I've not posted for a while due to lack of any real quality shots (been on an unsuccessful mission to photograph hen harriers), but managed to connect with the cattle egret that has been hanging around Tophill Low.
I went to Hempholme yesterday and didn't connect, then went to Tophill today and walked to Hempholme! (5 mile round trip)
It was hanging around one of the farms then flew briefly into a farmyard then flew off back into fields again.
A nice bird and another addition to the list.

Some cracking shots of a super bird for Yorkshire!

Thanks James- I think these birds are quite photogenic so hopefully going back for better light if it hangs around.
