Friday Fact – Little Egret

Sometimes wildlife tales aren’t all doom and gloom. The Little Egret is now becoming a more regular sight in Ireland.

Here’s an extract from Bird Watch Ireland’s site

Little Egret – Egretta garzetta

Status: Resident along coasts and rivers throughout Ireland, but still scarce in the Midlands and north-west of the country. Little Egret was considered rare in Ireland until it first started breeding here in 1997. It has since expanded and now occurs in almost every coastal county, as well as at a number of inland sites.
Conservation Concern: Green-listed in Ireland. The European population is considered to be Secure.

All puffed up!

Yes… they are spreading inland. We’ve even had a visitor in our own pond…

Happy Friday… as always, enjoy your weekend but don’t do what I wouldn’t!
