Egrets vs Perch

Date: 24/10/2017
Location:
Chew Valley Lake
Weather: Grey Clouds with drizzle
Species Highlights: 
Great White Egret
Observation: 
Went to Chew Valley, Lake Villice hide and spent a couple of hours photographing Great White Egrets, here's the results.




The Egrets constantly catching little Perch.


Mute Swan having a flap.


Not just Egrets a couple of Grey Herons also catching, must be hundreds of small fish in Villice Bay.


Almost feel sorry for the fish!



Little Egrets seemed more successful catching fish of all sizes where Great Whites seem to only take fish of around 6/7 inches.


Such smart little birds.


Needs a pair of goggles, i think!


Another one bites the dust.


So impressive and great to wile away a grey afternoon.


Speared bottom debris and all.


Sun came out a couple of times, unfortunately i had to go!
