Bubbles, are you in Singapore or the UK now?

The birds I posted were the possible ones if you were here in Singapore but they may differ if you were in UK...

Here's a list - the Grey Heron's there, too!

Hey Giselle....Thanks so much for that posting with the British Birds on it....

Yes, in UK, Wales.

It definitely was the Grey Heron, but honestly, when they say on the site that the wing span was 37ins I would beg to disagree on the one I saw, it looked so massive....

And no, I'm not turning into an anorak folks, I really do love birds. It's when I take up train spotting that I have to worry............(OK, no offence train spotters, it's just that it IS an unusual and rather anoraky thing to do...)
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
