With 10 roosting at Stockers, 16 more roosted at Stanborough

A very impressive 16 LITTLE EGRETS in to roost at Stanborough Lakes by 17.10 this evening.

This is well in excess of the number of birds that I am aware are feeding during the day in the nearby Lemsford Springs reserve, so presumably this site is acting as a roost for birds using much of the upper Lea Valley?
