I wonder if Burton have got spoonbills again. I never seen them till last year.
And I remember the first time I saw Egrets along the 'beach' at Parkgate and wondered what they were, never used to get those in this country, now we have 3 kinds.

I hope they have some Mo.
Little Egrets were first to appear again in the early 90's.
Now the Great White Egrets are appearing more and more, some even breeding here.
There are 17 at Dungeness at present, goes up every year.
Then there's the Cattle Egret showing more and more, plus as you say, Spoonbills.
They say there isn't a climate change, for whatever reason, going on.
Fear is that large birds are doing quite well, it's the little one's suffering.

The first piccie is indeed of a very handsome boy.
As for the white deer, where we lived before there were three herds and each one had at least one white deer. One year there were three in one herd. I thought albino's were a genetic fault......

Great pics Richard! Love the Spoonbills. When we first saw Little Egret in Devon about 15years ago it was amazing & now we don't bat an eyelid!!

I did think about a Calendar, but the outlay was a little worrying, but thank you for your nice comments.
