12 April 08 - North Norfolk

Spent over an hour this morning looking for the Cattle Egret at Stiffkey. It's got to be the most elusive Cattle Egret I've ever come across (or technically, not come across, as I didn't see it). Wandering around in a field of cattle is too good for this bird, which insists on skulking in willows and ditches, only showing (badly) a few times a day.
The day was rescued by a lovely adult Great Grey Shrike at Great Walsingham, which I had to myself for about 20 minutes in the afternoon.
