Cattle Egret at Hareplain.
I went over to Hareplain near Frittenden today to try and see the Cattle Egret which is a great local find by @SteveBDunge , i bumped into another birder who had seen it earlier flying towards Hareplain , i had a drive around the area without any luck and then headed back to the original site .
Flying over the road towards Buckhurst farm.
When i returned the original birder i saw was watching the Cattle Egret which was in the sheep field , he said it was hidden there the whole time , (must of been a Little Egret he saw fly off earlier ?) .
Anyhow i soon saw the Cattle Egret through my bins before it did take off and flew around us and landed in the fields just below Buckhurst Farm , it was always distant and i never got any decent photos of it , (poor light & distance being my excuse).
Here are a couple of digi scoped photos i managed to get , there was also a single Little Egret in the same field.
