Book Description

The Great or Great White Egret Ardea alba (the first of these options is used as the Gill & Donsker IOC International English name by the British Ornithologists' Union) was recorded as having bred in the UK for the first time in 2012, having arrived from Continental Europe as part of a natural range expansion. This bird has been a splendid addition to the British avifauna and this book contains photographs of four of them, taken during a visit to Dorset.
