CATTLE EGRET in Essex

A CATTLE EGRET was found at Vange Marsh yesterday morning, but flew off and was not found throughout the day. Then yesterday evening it was relocated roosting with little egrets at Wat Tyler near the scrape opposite the motorboat museum.

The bird was seen again this morning on Vange Marsh between 06.00 and 08.00 and provided good views. It seems as though the bird is following the little egrets off the roost onto Vange then leaving the marsh early morning to forage elsewhere during day. Wat Tyler closes at 20.00 and Vange Marsh can be accessed along the public footpath from Pitsea Hall Lane opposite Pitsea Railway Station car park (per Marc)
