Once again, my daily outing got me exploring along the bank of the Tamar estuary. Just before I got to a small stand of trees, a little egret (Egretta garzetta) took off its perch. I’d like to think it left this exquisite feather on a branch covered in moss, though it may have been a seagull, much more common here. In any case, by now this little marvel is probably nesting material for another, much smaller bird. Up-cycling?
