Egretta garzetta  Little Egret  Kleinwitreier
Little Egret
Modimolle, Jan 2018

Resident (or an erratic visitor?). Single birds recorded widely but sparsely on dams; it is commoner and more widespread than Great Egret. Not known to breed in the Waterberg but in years of high rainfall it does breed nearby on the Nyl floodplain and this population perhaps brings birds into the area.
