May 9th 2010. An Intermediate Egret at Onuma a couple of years ago. This is one of the 3 egret species that regularly 'overshoot' during spring migration to south Hokkaido. The others are Little and Cattle Egret: they are about equally regular and all are far less common than Great Egret.

  1. Cracking! The background is unique (rice?). Any sort of Egret is exciting in Scotland.

  2. Hi Stuart, the background is (I think) a nasty muddy rice field with last year's stubble.........the egret was eating worms and what looked like some kind of slug or leech. Yuk.
