For the past month or so, approximately 60 or 70 cattle
egret have been roosting every night in a tree in Albion
Park, NSW, next to a small wetland at the corner of Mortlock
Drive and Ashburton Drive. During the day they disperse to
their favourite feeding areas.

I understand that cattle egret gather in large colonies
during breeding season, but is this 'normal' behaviour for
flocks of this size outside of those times? 

It is the first time I have seen this type of gathering
