Great White Egret

Egretta alba (syn Ardea alba)


Large and elegant white wader, with long neck, long black and yellow legs, and long yellow bill.


Seen this morning in protected marshes (Mategnin les Fontaines), one of the few remaining ones in Geneva suburbs. These wetlands are situated exactly on the border between Switzerland and France.
