Hi guys, me again.
There's been all sorts of strange birds this year up the River Ayr, most we've been able to identify with the help of the bird book and those Little Grebes you guys managed to solve for us but I seen another at the weekend.
Unfortunately it just flew by and I didn't get a picture, but I got a look at it when it did. What caught my eye was that it was bright white, no other markings at all and I seen it's legs stretching behind it with this bright shock of yellow for feet. I didn't see it's head but the little look I got told me it must have been like a heron/wader bird. It actually put me in mind of the Egrets we see all the time on holiday to Florida, so I just assumed we had something similar where we are.
Checked the bird book when I got home and managed to find the Little Egret in my British bird book but according to it they only live in Southern Britain and Ireland. So it's not really anywhere near where I am in Scotland
I really wish I had a photo, but guess I just wanted to know if they travel up this far for any reason? Or is there another bird I'm maybe just not finding that this could possibly be?
Thanks for any help
