Dusk Egrets


Looking across the Exe towards Cockwood, from Mudbank.

I managed to squeeze in an hour's birding after work. Another nice sunset and 80+ Cattle Egrets in to roost, north of Starcross. Distant but distinctive in their tightly-packed pre-roost flocks. Also off Mudbank - the juvenile Spoonbill, 50+ Mallard, 6 Wigeon, just 1 drake Pintail and a flock of 22 Pied Wagtails. The 2 Black-necked Grebes were again scoped from Shelly Beach but they were feeding off Starcross. Great to catch up with Neil as always.
