Beautiful large grey and white bird with long yellow beak and black tuft on the top-back of its head. In flight it had its legs extended behind it. About 1 metre long. It flew along the River Wharfe fairly close to the water. I do not think it moves far from this spot so we will go back another weekend and try and get a photo.
