Further to the reporting of 3 great white egrets on the Exe estuary yesterday. One of the birds carried a red colour ring with white letters ABV. the RSPB have confirmed that this male bird was rung on 12th May 2022, in the nest, at RSPB Ham Wall on the Avalon marshes in Somerset. So far it’s been reported only from Cambridgeshire – long flights between different parts of the country are not unusual, but this is the first one for this bird. Please let me know if you saw this bird after 11.00am yesterday.
