Here a Great Egret came into a rookery on a nice, slow glide. There was a bit of a surprise, you can see in the second shot a slight shift.
Rather than land in the crowded trees he kept on going. Though it was good for us since the path took him right overhead.
I often think some birds have been in the same spot all day until finally it’s their turn to leave. Once in the air a few loops and stretches feel good.
