One might think its white color a disadvantage when it comes to foraging for food, but obviously not.

That name just doesn't sound right to me. I know I would rather be called the Lake Sleuth, or anything other than Pond Stalker.

That's one we get occasionally too. I saw A great white egret last weekend at Parkgate but couldn't get a picture anywhere near as good as yours.
