  • Hi RR

    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.

    Thanks Rocking Robin for posting some truly inspiring shots. Looks like you had fantastic weather for your visit.

    Thanks Shane,

    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.

    Have fun
