Rare bird visit provokes best headline ever

Thursday, April 24th, 2008

For the first time in recorded history, two egrets have been seen on a Scottish loch. The large heron-like birds turned up on the RSPB’s Loch of Strathbeg nature reserve at Crimond in Aberdeenshire, and may well have been blown over from their more natural home in the Netherlands.

How has the RSPB chosen to commemorate this rare siting? With a press release and website post bearing the glorious headline “Egrets? We’ve got a few“.
