Little Egret

Egretta garzetta


Small (about 60cm tall) all white heron with long and narrow dark grey bill and dark grey legs and green-yellow feet.


Seen in urban setting, in town Essaouira at the entrance to fishermen port - I've seen only one, in the midst of a huge flock of Lesser black-backed gulls (pic N° 4); and snapping its beak at them.
