There has been quite a bit of good news with regards to some breeding birds in Britain:-
1. Cattle Egrets have bred in Sussex and Norfolk this year for the first time. In Sussex I believe quite a few pairs bred and they are not too far from where they bred in Hampshire last year. Could be same birds moving or could be a new lot hopefully.
2. 3 pairs of Great White Egrets have bred at Holkham, Norfolk raising 6 young. I knew they bred somewhere in Norfolk in 2017 but thought that was a one off. They are expanding here.
3. Common Cranes breeding in Lincolnshire. The first time in 400 years?
4. Black Winged Stilts breeding at WWT Stear Marshes in Somerset - the most western record ever.
5. Pallid Harrier have bred in France at a place not that far form the English Channel. I know it is not the UK but it is not that far and still an excellent record!
Have I missed anything ?
