Swallows in the rain

Water pouring into Ogden yesterday

Another day of rain and drizzle with only about 1 hour of dry in between.
Swallows were coming through in good numbers this morning, even in the heaviest of the rain but no sign of Meadow Pipits or the Jays that are suppose to be on their way. Starlings have suddenly started to go mad with the Rowen berries which up to now have been left untouched. Its as if they know that the winter thrushes will be on their way shortly.
A customer at work said today that some friends of theres that walk their dog regular at Ogden flushed a large white bird the size of a Heron last Wed morning from the shale Dipper pond ( bottom photo). They said it was definately not a Heron and pure white. When flushed it flew east over Back Lane.
Have we had a Little Egret at our local hotspot !

71 Swallows...........................>SW

Damnation, I was at Ogden last Wednesday 15th and now I'll spend hours thinking how much did I miss the white job by. It's very possible it was an Egret, after all it was at the time of the terns being blown in.

Sounds like Little Egret - we could have done with that one between us!

Thats what I thought, the same day as the Terns, usually this couple walk round about 0800hrs, annoying isnt it.
