Great White Egret

Managed eventually, in the pouring rain to catch-up with the Great White Egret at RSPB Rainham Marshes today. First seen this morning on the winter pool before 9am, It apparently never stayed in one place for very long, and was senn on Aveley and Wennington Marsh. I watch first from the serin mound with out any luck, before hearing it was back on Wennington Marsh. By the time I arrived at the visitor centre, the weather had turned with persistent rain. The egret was didtant, but gave good scope views. Below are a couple of rubbish record shots taken with my phone through the scope. Hopefully it will stick around and show closer in better weather!
