    Hi Kev,

    Only saw details yesterday as down in Somerset but hoping to go tomorrow for a look at Cattle egrets. Know the area a little but any directions would be appreciated.

    Hi Dave,
    Just before the Ynyslas turn, keep right for the boatyard/ level Xing; just before the boatyard is a left turn to a farm -go up there , looking left at the pools in the field. This is their usual , but they are mobile. If no sign , return to road , go over Leri Bridge and over the Xing , pull in just after by gates and look right into cow field-another fav. haunt.They can go missing for 20 mins or so , but usually 2/4 return.
    Good luck.

    There were 5 feeding happily amongst the sheep and moving round the second field back from road on right after crossing the bridge this morning(monday). They showed no inclination to move elsewhere

    Very good views but did not come closer than about 50 metres.
