Author's notes

sorry only photo of this bird seen flying towards Bittern hide, thought it was another Great Egret but turns out it is probably the Little Egret that Steve Holliday saw mentioned on COG "The Practised Eye" by Geoffrey Dabb 3 January 2019 and was later confirmed to be a Little Egret.
