Only second sighting of rare heron on Arran

Bird notes

On Friday August 4, I received an email indicating that there was a little egret in Whiting Bay on the shore opposite the primary school. The sighting was confirmed and the information put out on the arranbirding website.

This was to be the first of 10 such reports between Friday August 4 and Monday August 7. Most of these were from the Sandbraes end of Whiting Bay but some were also from Clauchlands in Lamlash Bay. This was only the second record of little egret on Arran. The first one, at Sliddery Shore on Monday July 1 2013, did not hang around, but at least this latest one stayed for a few days, enabling many to enjoy this pure white heron with black legs and yellow feet hunting in the shallow pools on the shore.
