Anyone else see the beautiful white spoonbill on Boyton Marshes tonight? We were there about 4:30. What a beautiful sight. Karen
Hi Karen, I can't comment on Boyton Marshes, as I'm no where near the area, but I will say is I'm jealous, I've yet to see a spoonbill.....
With the forum being very public, what I will advise is you change your user name, which appears to be your email address.

I have seen nesting Spoonbills, not in North East England but not far from outside the area of North East England where I live and since I saw the original pair of nesting Spoonbills at this well known wetland reserve, there have been reports of 3-4 pairs of nesting Spoonbills every year at this wetland reserve, of where I saw the original nesting pair around 4 years ago at this wetland reserve.
Our herring gulls are red listed birds. Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.
Birding is for everyone no matter how good or bad we are at it,enjoy it while you can

Absolutely correct! I visited Fairburn Ings, when there was just one pair. I’ve seen reports in recent years about 3-4 pairs nesting at Fairburn Ings and also reports about breeding at St Aidans reserve close to Fairburn Ings and also reports that Spoonbills are increasing in numbers faster than previously and are now breeding in recent years more widely.
