Little Egret bill bubbling

I must confess that i don't spend that much time watching Little Egrets but i don't remember ever seeing one fishing like this one. It was creating bubbles with its bill which then attracted fish to either the noise or increased oxygen?, like an air stone in a garden pond. It never foot paddled like they usually do and seemed to be catching plenty of sprats with the bill bubbling method.
