Lot to learn
This morning I was lucky to see all three types of UK Egrets today, Great White, Cattle and Little, considering that there was not much else around on the Somerset Levels.
There were 3 Cattle Egrets, 2 of which had the beginnings of their summer plumage. Some photo’s below…..
Great pics everyone; here are the garden mallards .... (pics taken through the window)
and black-headed gulls having their usual disputes from Woolston today ............
Lesser black-backed Gull
and it's mate on the right who had a metal leg ring (unreadable from distance)

In reply to Alan.:
A wonderful shot Alan! This year we had the warmest winter ever - I missed strolling over frozen lakes or even seeing some snow.
Here a shot through my closed Kitchen window- two guests on my balconyAnd here (hopefully) another new neighbour on my balcony.
In reply to HAZY:
Wonderful shots again Hazel - here a special hello to your garden Mallards from the Mallards in my neighbourhood
