Artist's Description

A Rook digs about in the grass on the salt marsh at Campfield Marsh on the Solway coast of Cumbria,NW England,seemingly oblivious to the rather special visitor to his right. A Great White Egret (or Great Egret) that was overwintering there 2011/2012. (This was the 8th Feb 2012)
According to the RSPB,only about 10 of these birds overwinter in the UK.They bred for the first time in SW England in 2012. They have expanded their range from (continental) Europe. Hopefully they will soon be appearing in similar numbers to the Little Egret,which first apeared in the UK in significant numbers in 1989 and which are now quite common in my part of Cumbria.(See below for Little Egret)
