Bird Watching (UK) - - 30 Years Of Birdwatching -

This is a strange one. If any­thing, the Euro­pean pop­u­la­tion is de­clin­ing, but in­creas­ing num­bers are win­ter­ing in Bri­tain, usu­ally com­ing from colonies in south­ern Spain. There was even a breed­ing at­tempt at Framp­ton Marsh RSPB, Lin­colnshire, in 2014. That’s all very dif­fer­ent from 1986, when even one would have caused con­sid­er­able ex­cite­ment. As with Great White Egrets, oc­cur­rences in the UK will in­crease.
