Cattle Egrets

Possibly my favourite times on our Mallorcan trip were the sessions we did photographing these Cattle Egrets. There was a constant stream of them flying to their Heronry or should it be "Egretry" Many had sticks in their beaks for nest building, a few which were ridiculously long, sometimes nearly twice the length of the bird. We didn't get much warning of their approach, as they suddenly appeared in front of us over the bushes, sometimes too close to fit in the frame. Great fun though and the evening light worked really well on them, you can see the warmer colours on the ones taken just before the sun set.
