Recently, up to five Great Egrets have been reported at Summer Leys reserve, so I thought this would be a "given!" It would also provide a good walk for Symphony and get Heather a good number of year ticks. The weather looked spring like but a biting wind soon penetrated our layers of clothing sending us to shelter! Of course, not a single Great Egret showed!
"I've told you ducks before, I'm NOT going to race you!
