I've seen Little and Cattle egrets together a few times but not that often
(I THINK Belmont Common in Geelong was the last place, but I'd have to
check my records on the Littles - I've certainly seen Intermediate, Great
and Cattle there, but not all at once).

Also on Egrets - do Great Egret pairs wandering fairly widely apart from
each other - i.e. if I see 2 individuals within 1-2Km are they a likely
pair?  And what about Spoonbills?  Lately there have been quite a few near
my home, and at least two mixed pair seem to be getting on well enough
(i.e. two pairs of Royal+Yellow-billed). Or do they just happen to like to
forrage together?
