Little Egret! the good news and the bad……

Decided on an early start this morning to watch visible migration from Caldene Fields watchpoint mainly looking for hirundines and Swifts.  But a big surprise when at 07.42 I picked up a Little Egret flying S/W just south of Wyke that the really good news.  The bad news if it been further north it would have probably been in Caldene Fields air space and I would have been able to count it as a new bird for the site……  But still unlike last years bird at least this one is a Bradford bird and the record will be forwarded to the Bradford Ornithological Group.
