Cat' in the compound

Thanks to Erich for the Sunday update via the medium of Facebook - as he writes:
The Cattle Egret was still in the works compound this morning but flew off in the direction of Easingwold Farm at 11.30 [heard nothing more on it.] A mixed finch flock including Siskin and Lesser Redpoll was in the car park. Had a Short-eared Owl at Standingholme Pond. 2 Smew and drake Pintail on Watton NR. First winter Mediterranean Gull again roosted on O res.

Thanks too to Steve Coleman for these great pictures of the cattle egret during its stay in the works compound on Saturday:

And also for this improved image of the iceland gull from last week by Tom Lowe:

Remember too to keep checking the Flickr page for excellent photos including more of the cattle egret by Alan and some outstanding sparrowhawk pictures by Jeff Barker.
