This bird was above the nests on the small rookery island. All the noise and clambering was down below with the young birds.
As part of the walk through the rookery we were to take a count of all the different birds and most notable finds. Being the ‘new kid’ my count was not very accurate. I don’t remember what the final count was but we were in the hundreds, Egrets alone could have been that. In a 4 hour hike I saw more than a typical year.
Gotta love walking with the pros. They know exactly where to go.
