Little Surprise

When you have been looking at birds as long as I have, its not common to have a surprise. Sure, you don’t know on any outing which birds you will see but, long term, there’s another sort of surprise. I remember, a long time ago, in the Gambia, seeing an Ibis. Two old ladies (who we got to know well) were aware and said “congratulations – the first of many”. I’ve just checked and we have photographed eighteen in our travels. Anyway, it was a shock when an Ibis turned up close to home.
Today we saw a Little Egret. Sure, they are now fairly widespread in Central and Southern Scotland but when we started looking at birds you would need to go to Southern Spain to see one. Today we walked from our house and there it was.
