The Little egret

Commonly found around our coastal areas the Little egret is a stealthy fisherman favouring the coastal ponds and shallows.Easily identifiable with its characteristic yellow feet and white plumage ,this is a immature bird so it lacks the head plumes
Great shot, Howard. Lovely sense of action here!
