Ardea alba  Great Egret  Grootwitreier
Great Egret
Dinaka, Jan 2018
Fishing alongside Little Egret

Erratic visitor. Single birds recorded widely but sparsely on the larger dams in the area. Not known to breed in the Waterberg but in years of high rainfall large numbers breed nearby in reedbeds on the Nyl floodplain and these are perhaps the source of the area's visitors.
