An egret (again from a distance – I only have my phone to take pictures on and it can be challenging at these distances!)

The following were also all taken at St Cyprien, but I haven’t got around to identifying any of them yet.

With thanks, as ever, to the members of For the Love of Nature on Facebook, who helped identify some of the photos here.  If you know what any of the unidentified plants are, I’d really appreciate you helping!
