2 Great White Egret

I started today off at around 7.30 on the Exminster Marshes and was lucky enough to see 2 Great White Egret one of the birds was yesterdays summer plumaged bird with a black bill and showed very well and this photo was taken in the early morning light , but the other one was a non breeding bird with a yellow bill and this one spent a lot of the time hidden in ditches ! also seen today were three new birds for the year with 20+ Common House Martin , 4 European Reed Warbler and a Sedge Warbler , 3 Grass Snake and my 1st Orange Tip Butterfly of the year were also added to the day list.
And on the Powderham Marshes 2 Little Ringed Plover showed well , and this superb looking Spotted Redshank was on the Clyst Estuary .
