Montrose - Rossie Spit.

The Little Egret was on the spit at high tide this morning, but then flew off once the tide started to go out. I guess it could be using the spit as a high tide roost.

Little Egret back on the spit this evening (10pm) at high tide and was reasonably active walking around with a grey heron.
