In amongst the cattle

I was hoping to get out this morning to photograph a friend who was ringing birds in Frome. Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate with a gusty wind and drizzly rain. Hopefully we'll try again soon.

In the meantime, there's a local Cattle Egret overwintering just 5 miles from Frome so I decided to go along and see if I could get some photos. I found it in the expected field with half a dozen cows for company. It was quite happily feeding and didn't seem to mind me clicking away. It would have been nice to get a bit closer, but I guess a photographer is nearly always going to wish that!
