Great White Egret - Brockholes Wetland LWT - 25th September 2009

Great White Egret - on River Ribble adj to Brockholes Quarry

The Bird was first seen by Carl Partington and I was able to twitch the bird an hour after it was found at 16.00. On arrival I saw the bird flying distantly away which was a bad sign but at least I got views of the bird. The bird then remained out of view but still in the area so the wait was on with Bill Aspin, Tony Disley and other regulars
Due to work responsibilities I had to leave at 16.30 so when the bird reappeared at 16.25 flying back to the river, I was extremely relieved!
The First site record for this county rarity and the 5th new species for Brockholes in 2009 - What a Year!
