Arrived at Old Moor tonight at 19.30 and headed straight for the Field Pool West hide as I had just had a text saying 4 Little Egrets were present. From the hide the 4 Egrets could be seen, 3 adults and 1 juvenile, almost immediately the Egrets flew to roost in the willows on the Willow Pool. Therefore I followed the Egrets down to the Wath Ings Hide.
Roosting in the willows tonight were Grey Heron 1, Cormorant 13 & Little Egret 15. The Egrets came in as follows: 4 @ 19.30, 2 @ 19.45, 1 @ 19.54, 1 @ 20.18, 3 @ 21.19, 1 @ 21.27, 1 @ 21.38, 1 @ 21.54 and finally 1 @ 21.58. All the Egrets came in tonight from up the valley apart from the first 4 and the 1 @ 21.38 which came in from down the valley.
At about 8 o'clock 2 Curlews flew over the Main Marsh towards the Wader Scrape and a Barn Owl was hunting.
