I took these on a trip out to Eastbourne today, at Seven Sisters Country Park. As well as the little egrets, I was lucky enough to see a kingfisher (but it was too fast to photograph). The egret was rather more accommodating, posing primly on a fence by the edge of the water.
It had been wading when I first spotted it, and soon returned to the serious business of hunting tiddlers.
There were some other little birds the water, and these ones really are little.
Two more shots from today… As I was heading home I spotted a gathering of swans (11 in total). It was difficult to get a good angle from the bank, but I quite like this one.
I can’t go without adding another photo of the fox from this evening.
Camera note: all the bird photos were taken with the Canon 7D Mark II and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens. As ever, I used the EF 200mm f/2.8L II USM for the fox.
