LITTLE EGRET, Lower Rivington Reservoir 22/12/10

Post by Ian Woosey » Thu Dec 23, 2010 9:13 pm

Yesterday 22nd Dec.

A Little Egret flew over the dam heading north west at 4.10pm, certainly came out of Gtr. Manchester.

Info thanks to Phil Rhodes.

(Per Simon Warford, Manchester Birding Forum).

I've often hoped I'd find a Little Egret in Eccleston! as far as i know this has been the closest report yet? The closest I've seen them so far is at Martin Mere.
