Sometimes the rain can bring small delights! - Little Egrets

The common is wetter now than it has been for more than a year now.

It usually floods at some stage in the winter but it just didn't happen this year, so we missed out on all the geese, and ducks that would normally make the most of the flooded land for a month or so.
So imagine our excitement when these turned up this morning - a first for the common as far as we know, certainly we haven't seen any here in the fifteen years we've lived here.
A pair of Little Egrets.
