After shopping, recently, we passed a field of Cows with a few Egrets standing by.
There seems to be a lot more of these lovely birds around than I remember.
I immediately said to Lady Magnon "I wish some of them would come to live around us".
That same afternoon we saw five Egrets down with the Horses. It was almost as if they'd heard my request. We've never seen them here before.
Since then I've counted about ten. I disturbed them up in a tree recently whilst walking the dog.
They really are the most elegant and beautiful birds. I know they're not rare, but having them settle in our tiny hamlet is wonderful.
I hope they stay and multiply.
