On Thursday I joined a trip organised by an old friend to the New Forest and have to write an account of the day for the group magazine. I will start on that later! For now I just wanted to post this to celebrate the fact that I saw a bird, fairly new to the British list that I had never seen in this country before. All is explained in my link here to the RSPB. Egrets have not reached the Severn Estuary as far as I'm aware, but are becoming increasingly common in estuaries around the South and East Coast, first appearing in significant numbers in 1989.
