Tonight on "The One Show" 1900 BBC1

Cattle Egrets Breed in Somerset: Following the unprecedented influx of Cattle Egrets, Bubulcus ibis last winter, a pair of Cattle Egrets have subsequently bred in Somerset rearing at least one young. As far as we know, this is the first recorded breeding in the United Kingdom. The story will feature on the BBC TV 'The One Show' tonight at 19:00 and on the BBC Radio 4 'Today' programme tomorrow morning

Not really surprising - what will be if the juvenile survives!

Thanks C I will watch that. They have been saying for couple of years that this might happen, first the Little Egrets, now these.

I wonder if manufactured BeeEater nests are available - I might put one up - just in case!! Wink
