043/365 Cattle Egret Bubulcus ibis


Image 043 is of a Cattle Egret watching two gents playing golf. When visiting foreign countries which are particularly hot, always find the nearest water and you will find birds there. Golf courses are always a hot spot for birdlife. To keep the greens in pristine playing condition the gardeners water them everyday, in turn attracting hundreds of birds for their daily drink.

Cattle egret, Bubulcus ibis, Shangri La golf course, Borneo, Malaysia, April 2010.
