I have been out a few times the past week to check my favourite local spot for birds, and had a great time watching and photographing the egrets and herons in the marsh. Below are a few of the shots I got that were halfway decent. The first image below is my favourite - the setting sun cast a pinkish hue onto the clouds and the egret as it loped slowly past me.
American Bittern was new for my 5MR this year.
