Ouse Washes

With mamma away and a bag full of beans needing to release some pent up energy I decided to take a walk along the Ouse Washes. My intention was to see if I could identify the cattle egret and just enjoy being outside. It had rained and there were plenty of puddles (muddy ones!). Of course we were wearing appropriate footwear for splashing in puddles, NOT. It did encourage walking though and not carrying, splash after splash after splash.
We walked down to the most likely hide to see the cattle egret (there were detailed maps on the visitors hut telling us which). Mission accomplished: one tired little cookie. as for the egret, I'm not convinced, you?
