Radipole RSPB Reserve

I've filmed plenty of little egrets here before but today the light was particularly good.
It then started to scratch and preen for a while.
Herons and egrets have particularly fragile feathers, designed to shed any slime from the fish they eat.
You can see bits of feathers drifting around here in the strong light.
What you don't often see is an egret nearly falling off its perch.
