Year 248 (Great White Egret)

Fabulous scenes at Banks Marsh over the high tide, with particularly impressive numbers of waders and egrets. Year ticks just keep coming, I keep thinking that they must slow down soon, but they don't, and I've seen 13 new birds for the year since the end of September. I'm in unknown territory at the moment, I've never been past 245 before and with two months of the year still to go, there's time for a few more yet.
