No less than 7 Cattle Egrets feeding among cattle beside the B 3151 where it crosses the North Drain between Westhay and Wedmore at 08.00 this morning.

Great news and a reward for the hard walk done in Ham Wall by staff and by the “watchers”  It will be interesting to see how much dispersal there is from this colony over the next 12 months.

Ham Wall RSPB have just announced that 9 juv Cattle Egrets have fledged from 5 nests, and 17 juv Great White Egrets have fledged from 7 nests.
Brilliant news on these rare British breeding birds.
