Cassington GPs 23rd August

Great white Egret  relocated at Cassington GPs by Roger Wyatt and still present at 18:00.

Heading west from Oxford on the A40 take the left hand turn after the large layby (often with a burger van) on to the haul road leading to the Hanson works and recycling centre. The road will take you back under the A40 to view the first pit on the left about 50 yards after the bridge under the A40.
Please park sensibly in the cleared area just to the left of the gate.

VIEW ONLY FROM THE ROAD DO NOT ENTER THE PIT  
This is a sensitive site with one very dedicated patch worker and permission has very kindly been sought in order that others may see this bird.

About Here

NB The Site Closes at 4:30p.m

Just some of the assembled birders checking out the Great White Egret. 

 A temporary record shot until Roger posts some of his 
great shots in due course.
