I've posted a Little egret picture before, but this captive example at Whipsnade Zoo shows a slightly different perspective. The basic idea is the same though: small white heron!

I do see them occasionally around the countryside on river banks, often from the car, though they're clearly not nearly as numerous as Grey herons. I'm slightly surprised that the RSPB's page on the Little egret has the numbers as low as they do, but maybe it's just evidence of how quickly numbers can swell (or diminish) over just a few years. Or maybe there's just been a few kicking around my neck of the woods.
