It flew over the Shapwick bridge over the River Brue at around 4.10 and seemed to track along a parallel course to the high voltage pylons that run from here to Catcott Lows. A new way to check the power lines??
Anyone in the hides at Catcott mid afternoon on Tuesday 4th August as it looks from the track that a large 4 engined RAF Atlas must have flown almost over the hide at about 500ft and that would have put a few birds up!
At least 60 Cattle Egrets among distant cattle at eastern end of Catcott Lows this late morning, also 2 Little Egrets on pool in front of main hide.
Around 50 showing well up and down between the two hides yesterday. Only a few in breeding plumage now including the one in this shot
after a blank 4 weeks, I reconnected with the Cattle Egrets this morning. No less than 85 were on the new pond in front of the second hide at the Lows while a further 25 were in a field just south of the Lows on the lane towards Catcott village. There were a few immature and juveniles but the majority were still in full breeding plumage.
