Thanks for all the guesses but these were what I was thinking of when I asked the "What's white and fluffy?" question. They are, of course, little Little Egrets. There's at least six between three adult pairs down at Walthamstow reservoirs and they're a delight to watch, I could happily sit there for hours. I'll show you a shot of the feathery feeding frenzy tat occurs when a parent arrives with fresh fish in a day or so (though it really isn't much more than a feathery blur). Canon EOS-1D Mark III
