The Safari has just learnt that the Lake District Red Kites were released yesterday - how long before one passes over Base Camp? Although one was seen not overly far away before this release. Here's hoping anyway.
And another thing - are Little Egrets invisible whren they move between estuaries or do they track far out to sea hugging the waves and then circle back in? We only ask as they are fairly numerous on all the estuaries in these parts, Dee, Mersey, Ribble, Wyre, Morecambe Bay, Walney Island but we've never seen one fly past during a watch on Patch 2 nor overhead on Patch 1. They are as rare as rocking horse doo-doo at the nature reserve and they don't fly at night cos we've watched 30 odd going to roost at Leighton Moss so just how do they move between estuaries without being seen? Do they change into Stealth Egrets? Here's hoping anyway.
Where to next? Gonna hit those rockpools with vengeance tomorrow morning...and try waterproofing one of the camera - the cheaper one!
In the meantime let us know if there are any stealth birds in your outback?
