Radipole Walk

A recent walk around Radipole Lake for a couple of hours with varying degrees of light and weather revealed species that I expected to find.

The main interest was observing a Little Egret that was stalking through the reeds fishing. It would disturb the water by moving its foot rapidly which in turn spooked the small fish. It would then strike with its long beak, but not always successfully.

  1. A very productive walk. How on earth did evolution come up with the idea of equipping the Little Egret with yellow feet to disturb the fish? And why haven't other birds got a similar adaptation?

    1. Thanks John.
      Yes very odd, especially when the Great Egret has black feet.
