    The great white egret disappeared for a couple of days after the photos were taken but was re-found by Bob Swann at Loch Eye. It has been back in Tain Bay every day until Friday, 27 May, usually on the rising tide when the tide is about half way in.

    It has disappeared again this weekend 28 – 29 May. Maybe it spends every weekend at Loch Eye!
