How to see over the hedge.
My thanks to Alexandra Makhnina for the above photos of the Great White Egret. It has black legs and feet and, in non-breeding plumage, a yellow bill.
The Great White Egret is a white heron about the size of the Grey Heron. It is native to southern Eurasia and the middle Americas.
Male and female have similar plumage (breeding plumage includes a mainly dark bill).
