Egrets, I've had a few.

Went down to Burton Mere Wetlands yesterday (Saturday), hoping to photograph the Great White Egret that has been around for some time now. Unfortunately, the bird was too distant even for record shots, but there were plenty of migrants around on a rainy afternoon including Swallows, House Martins, Sand Martins and a singing Willow Warbler. Managed to photograph a Little Egret in poor light, and the immature Spoonbill flew overhead a couple of times but didn't land near the hide.
One week until London Marathon. Did a run of 12.5 miles including a few miles at marathon pace.
