My God.Another life tick.





I've had a golden birding week with three life ticks.First the Green-winged Teal at Draycote,then a Dipper at Lathkill Dale and yesterday the Cattle Egret at Middleton Hall.The magic 400 ticks is now getting very close only 170 to go.

As I approached Middleton Hall yesterday I was worried that the Cattle Egret had gone as it was first seen a few days earlier.There was only one other birder there when I arrived which was not good news but as luck would have it it was still there feeding happily amongst the cattle.A bit far off for a decent shot but I was not complaining.
