Cattle Egret: doing what it says on the tin

Had the car at work today in Dorchester so stopped by Kingston Maurward on the way home to look for a Cattle Egret discovered yesterday. It was living up to its name at the bottom of a field, but after 15 minutes feeding quite happily, one of the cows approached a bit too boisterously and it (the egret) flew strongly to the east. Cattle Egret afraid of cows? Not good for the CV.
Careful where you stand: an occupational hazard for the Cattle Egret
