    Moorhens and other coots are perhaps not the most elegant of birds, but they are always fascinating to watch! The egret, on the other hand, has the bearing of a ballerina! Happy weekend Eileen. YAM xx

  33. The Great Egret is a magnificent bird Eileen and two wonderful photos. I had to look closer at the Common Moorhen as it looks so pale compared to ours, but then I think it's the bright light that you found on that day.

    Thanks for the chance to link up today. Enjoy your Sunday.
