Egret

Observation - Egret - Global. Description: Friends sailing say this bird circled the boat several times yesterday and was brave enough to land a few times today. It appears to be off course and desperate for a rest. Any ideas if it is on migration or blown off course? Further photo just sent. ****

Friends sailing say this bird circled the boat several times yesterday and was brave enough to land a few times today. It appears to be off course and desperate for a rest. Any ideas if it is on migration or blown off course? Further photo just sent. ****THE BIRD IS ABOUT 15cm "IN ITS STOCKINGED FEET, i.e. STANDING"!**** which makes it a bit small for an intermediate egret? Later: FRIENDS APLOGISE - MEANT TO SAY 15in. not cm.
