Cattle Egret






I took these images of Cattle Egret at Phasouri Reedbed near Akrotiri in Cyprus during my recent visit there. These birds were quite confiding and I was able to get quite close and took these images via the open car window. As you can see in image 2 and 3 one of the Egret plucked a small snake from the bushes and had no difficulty eating it. These birds were in the vacinity of cattle in the Reedbed and seemed happy feeding by the cows. I had more images of these birds on a memorycard that I have lost I hope to find this when I return to Cyprus later in the year.
