A Little Egret on the river near my apartment 3 years ago today.
It was sharing the river with several Grey Heron and Great Egret.
This is not especially common in Hokkaido but I usually see 1 or 2 a year. This one stayed a few weeks and is the only individual of this species I've photographed much. Not as common here as they have become in the UK..............no dramatic northward invasion this side of the Eurasian landmass. Not yet anyway.
