I popped up to the River Welland in search of ‘Sharky’ the Great White Egret and perhaps some Whinchats again, this evening. Sadly, the Whinchats were not to be found and neither was the GWE, until, I spotted him/her rising (in flight) briefly above the high bank of the Welland (viewed from where the road had already dropped off the bank). I parked up on the bend of the road where it drops off and could see it fishing in the river to the north and occasionally coming up onto the bank with assorted corvids, sheep and cattle.

Great White Egret, Deeping High Bank, south Lincs, 8.9.20
