Little Egret - River Lathkill at Alport

Simon Roddis sent me a message late yesterday afternoon to say he had seen a Little Egret on the river near the entrance to Alport village. It was too late to have a look last night so made that my starting point this morning.
Fortunately it was still along the river between Bowers Hall and Alport but was quite flighty.
Although the number of records continues to increase in Derbyshire, as the egret continues its northward expansion, it is still a rarity in the Peak District. My last record was in December 2012 although Ken had distant views of 6 birds that were almost certainly Little Egrets in the valley last August.
