    That did cross my mind but part of my role as a ranger is not to assume people know what you know or basic knowledge, I know Wes has some knowledge but thought he wouldn't take the piss on this Thread.
    I await his response..

    You bad man !

    Fyi the GWE has a Yellow bill in Winter only but they tend to be a winter visitor so you will only really see them during the winter,
    The little egret has a black bill and is much smaller and also breeds here.

    The little egret also has yellow feet. I'm seeing them more and more these days after only seeing one for the first time a couple of years ago. There was one at Attenborough on Sunday but flew off before I could point my camera at it.

    Never seen a GWE.

    Folk traveling far and wide now to my reserve to photograph the bearded Tits.
    They are a couple of Metres away from the path and are drwaing massive crowds as the usually shy bird doesn't give a toss and you can almost pick it up.
    The photographers have miss judged the distance and are finding the big lenses useless because they are too close.

    Many’s the time I’ve travelled many Kilometers for a good look at some tits as well.

    But unfortunately some are going the other way, such as barn owls and kestrels. It'll be interesting when the RSPB garden bird count results come out to see if species such as sparrows and starlings are continuing their decline also.

    I thought they might be a bit rarer than the jackdaw.

    Choughs have red or yellow bills, quite different to the rest of the Crow family.

    Sorry went out immediately after. Choughs are quite distinctive. They have a much slimmer bill to most other crows, and it and its legs are red. As far as I know they aren't down in Dorset - unless you've heard otherwise? Most of them are on the north and extreme west coasts of Cornwall and the coasts of Wales.
    In all the time I've spent in Cornwall over the years I've only seen them once !

    I have learned something today regarding Male Blackbirds.
    You can tell a first winter male blackbird from the colour of it bill which is dark coloured as to the Bright yellow of a full adult male.
    It's amazing what you learn by looking closer.
