Great white egret at Coate Water

Great White Egret by Tony Martin on 15 December 2012

A Great White Egret has been spotted at Coate Water Site of Special Scientific Interest over the last few days. It is a very rare visitor to Wiltshire and a very exciting spot.

English Nature will add the bird to its list for Coate Water SSSI.

How sad that Redrow Homes and Persimmon Homes have planning permission to build nearly 900 houses and a massive business park very close to the nature reserve.  Indeed it is a tragedy.
