LITTLE EGRETS roosting at Stanborough Lakes

A quick check at Stanborough Lakes this evening revealed 9 Little Egrets roosting, so I think this site has now become an established roost in its own right. There could have been more birds present, but there is still quite a lot of foliage on the trees on the roost island. Birds are easier to see in January by when all the remaining leaves will have have dropped (Anthony Dorman)

With up to 17 at Amwell (per Barry Reed) and another 17 in recent days at Stockers (per Joan Thompson), the roosting population is currently at a minimum of 43 birds (LGRE)
