I maybe should have gone to specsavers, but the one by the station, I think, is a little egret, a great egret is as big as a heron. Maybe we have one of each?

There’s a pair. Saw them together yesterday in the same place.

Yes I saw it today. I see it sometimes when walking to and from the station on my commute. I occasionally see a grey heron.

An egret has been patrolling the river for several years now.  It seems to hang around for a few weeks then presumably goes off to new lunching grounds.  Hard to tell, of course, if it's the same one that keeps coming back, or whether the Evenlode is visited on a rota basis.

Spotted a beautiful great white egret stalking the river just downstream of the bridge at Cornbury Pk, off Grammar School Hill. I wonder if it’s planning to stay?
