Hi new here
Just seen a bird and I'm intruiged, would it be possible to see an egret here in West Yorkshire?
I have seen egrets in Africa and it was very similar.
White bird, long beak, quite tall, walking farmland.
It could easily be an egret.
They are quite commonplace in many parts of the UK, particularly the little egret.
Did you notice what colour the beak and legs were?
The reason why I ask is, we have little egrets, great white egrets and cattle egrets that inhabit the UK.
If you're not sure, and are able to post a photo, it would be easily identifiable.
