Though the tide was in and the mist was coming down, the Little Egrets stood acoss the water on the grass banks and there were at least 12 that I could see.
Along the Menai Straits on the tide line were Oystercatchers, Turnstones, Curlews, Starlings and mixed Gull including Sandwich Terns.

Hi Shirley

May I ask whether you have a Field Guide or not ?

Because situations like this, where you have a still photograph to work from, provide you with a great opportunity to learn how to identify certain birds.

There are some very tricky I.D.'s out there..............but this really ISN'T one of them.
