Egret in the Docklands

Little Egrets are now fairly common in Southern England but I never tire of seeing them. They still hold some of that exotic, continental aura about them. This year saw the first breeding record for London. For the past few years a bird has regularly turned up in late summer in the docklands of East London at the Lea Valley nature reserve of East India Dock Basin. I took the Docklands Light Railway out there today to try and get some photographs but it was fairly wet and windy.
