It was at RSPB Arne. We definitely saw three in a small area - I think there are meant to be around 70 pairs around the site. That might be optimistic. of note we also saw 15 spoonbills there.
Sounds like a good site, I’ve not been there. Spoonbills becoming increasingly common, I remember when it was a big deal to see one anywhere in the UK. They’ve just released the news that a pair bred on Orkney last year. Orkney ffs, that’s an amazing record.

GW egrets, Cattle egrets cranes and storks seem much more frequent sightings than they were.
