Big Fishing and Flying Day

The same day that we saw the egret struggling with a flounder, we also saw other egrets come flying in and doing some fishing of their own.

One caught a large mullet but then dropped the fish in the mud. Nine times out of ten we would see a bird bring the fish back over to the water and rinse it off. Many egrets and herons don’t like swallowing a lot of mud with their fish, so a quick wash was expected.

Not this guy however, perhaps he didn’t want to risk losing the fish if he dipped it into the water, but in any case it got gulped right down mud and all!
