Hot on the heels of the breeding Purple Herons at Dungeness and the Little Bitterns in Somerset comes some great news about Spoonbills. I've copied the following edited version over from the Birdguides site, since they posted it today and the information is now 'out there'.
Four nesting pairs of Spoonbills at Holkham NNR (Norfolk) have raised six young with at least two further pairs still feeding young (the largest UK colony in over 300 years). NOTE: Spoonbills are Schedule 1 birds and it is an offence to disturb the birds at or near the nest site or away from the nest site when they are with dependent young. Please keep to public paths and hides.
Let's hope that there are no reports of idiots trying to get too close as happened with the Little Bitterns.
