Below are some photos of a visit to Dungeness in early August.
First up great views of the Great White Egret
Female Ruddy Darter Dragonfly
Male Common Blue Damselfly
A few weeks ago Oystercatchers were in this spot whilst the Terns sat close by on eggs.
Great shots, I never knew there was such a size difference between the little and great white egrets as I have yet to see a great white egret, I really must get to Dungeness soon i have not been there this year. That last shot of the Heron looks almost tropical with the plants in the background it gives a real contrast of colour.

In reply to Shane:
Thanks Rocking Robin for posting some truly inspiring shots. Looks like you had fantastic weather for your visit.
You are right about the size difference between the Great & Little Egret , we recently saw a Leucistic Grey Heron next to a Little Egret , the size difference was even more surprising, (photo below).
And to complete the "Egert Collection" a Cattle Egret below.
The plants with the Grey Heron do add a tropical feel,I think they may be Canna's.
