Hi John

The Great White Egret was flying over the car park and Middleton Farm when I arrived just before 1pm, before it landed back on the reserve. In the next four hours it spent most of the time feeding towards the North end, giving good views to several birders. The Hobby was hunting around Middleton Farm both early and late afternoon.

Cheers
