Low Tide: An Egret Visits

18 Sep

Though it makes swimming more difficult, and sometimes even impossible, low tide has its attractions.

There is a raw beauty in the exposed rocks, some studded with oyster shells. And something else: the graceful water birds often come to feed.

Some time ago, my visit to the river at low tide coincided with that of a beautiful, large white bird.

A welcome visitor: a beautiful Egret

An egret had landed beside a very small, quiet beach: a favourite spot for Chicki and me to visit.

Luckily, my camera was on hand!

Enjoy!

      Thank you, David! I take it out with me as much as is feasible. Luckily there are some lovely places to visit not too far away from home. 🙂
