Cattle Egret

Bubulcus ibis
In May 1993 the first Severnside Little Egret dropped out of the sky onto Northwick Warth near “the flash”. We had been expecting a Cattle Egret to appear for a number of years following recent records nearby in Gwent, Gloucestershire and North Somerset. Just over 19 years since the first Little Egret, on 9th September 2012 a Cattle Egret was found on Norhwick Warth near the flash and spent most of the day feeding around Cattle and Horses.
