Pictured: A pair of egrets battle it out on the water as they attempt to mark their territory.
The two birds viciously stabbed their sharp beaks into one another during the early morning clash.
Amateur photographer Simon Barrett saw the egrets - who were about one year old - grappling with each other at Tophill Low Nature Reserve, Yorkshire. SEE OUR COPY FOR FULL DETAILS.
