Hi y'all
Thanks to those who pointed out that I was unlikely to have seen little
egrets from the bus.  I grabbed another look this morning and the cattle
egrets were there together with about a dozen WF herons.  I had thought
perhaps some of the birds I saw (a mere glimpse looking into the sun)
earlier were small slim white egrets with a dark beak, but I guess it was a
trick of the light and they were really herons!  There was another group of
birds at the far side of the oval today which I asume were more cattle
I also saw the Rosanna cattle egrets yesterday hopping up the railway
cutting as the train went through, as well as a few gang-gangs just off the
Main St shopping centre in Greensbrough, which brightened up my lunchtime.
