Birds at Ferry Bridge - Little Egret

A bird that can be regularly found around the Ferrybridge waters.
From my observations of this species there, it is able to find plenty of food.
Its large yellow feet are visual in these images.

It is both a resident species and a Winter visitor.
In fact here in Dorset is the location where this species bred for the first time in 1996. There are now numerous locations in the South coast area where it is resident.

The view from Portland over Chesil Beach. Ferrybridge tidal water is located centrally at two thirds the way along the beach. 

In the photograph below, Ferrybridge tidal water is in the centre of the image.


  1. Lovely pictures, especially the 4th one showing its long feathers. Such huge silly looking feet too. We have noticed over the last 15 years or so how Little Egrets have gone from being mostly summer birds to all year round (in Brittany), then more recently the Great Egrets seemed to become more and more common there.

    1. Thanks Mandy, yes they are common now on the South coast areas here.

  2. Hi Roy,
