A Great Egret was seen this morning at the turning basin pond at York Landing on the GV Greenway. My husband saw it about 9:30 while a Great Blue Heron was attempting to shoo it away. He returned with me about 10:00 and the Egret was alone, on a partially submerged tree trunk. The yellow bill and black legs were obvious as it fed in the shallow water.
