Great Blakenham: Huge rare bird drops in on Suffolk

TWITCHERS from across the region have been flocking to a field near Ipswich after a rare cattle egret flew in for some tasty snacks!

Reader Tom Pickover’s picture shows the large white bird, which eats insects and worms disturbed by cows, in a field, alongside resting cattle, at Great Blakenham.

Some reports say the egret is only the sixth seen in Suffolk.
