Details of Little Egret















In 2022 I took a stall at the monthly PromArt on the Promenade at Grange-over-Sands in Cumbria.

It takes place on the last Sunday of each month between April and September.

At about 2pm each time I was there a little egret (sometimes two) turned up on the tideline to peck around.

I thought its appearance was quite a rare occurrence,

but on the Silverdale side of the estuary there are apparently several pairs.

For a bird originally from the Mediterranean, I thought this was exciting.

My cheap little camera could barely cope with zooming a quarter mile – but eventually I managed a photograph good enough to turn into a linocut.

The resulting two-colour print has some hand finishing on the reeds.
