Filey Dams - 27th July 2017

Little Egret

"There's not much about" - words that often greet you when arriving at a hide! Really? There is always something about, often common and expected species, but they are there and often provide excellent photographic opportunities as opposed to a distant rarity! Today was one of those days!

Opening the flaps in the carpark hide, we met some of the locals!


On the board walk, a Comma Butterfly posed but did not allow sight of its comma!



"Do you think he saw us? Grey Lag Geese.


A Little Egret did it's best to cover every part of the "Dams", giving excellent views at times!






Whilst at times, competing with a Grey Heron!



Who can resist a Grey Heron?





A Green Sandpiper was difficult to capture, always remaining distant!




It was nice to see Lapwings (c22)



I don't think this Magpie will hit it as a fashion mogul!



Stock Doves are always a pleasure to see!



And finally, a juvenile Dunnock



Overall, a lovely couple of hours at a delightful reserve!
