Little Egrets and Grey Herons are currently scattered across the marsh as they attempt to catch the many frogs, tadpoles and sticklebacks that are flourishing in the wet conditions. The first juvenile Egrets from local colonies are now coming in with their parents and I suspect that the 20 bird figure will soon be broken. They seem to work collectively and small groups round up fish with short darting dashes, wiggling yellow feet and flicking wings. Great stuff!
