Thanks Heikki, obvious I suppose when you look at it. Always good to learn, to me they've always been either grey or white until again someone corrected me in that my 'white' herons were in fact egrets....

A bit too far, so it took quite some cropping and PP, probably even a bit too much....

Thanks Johan, methinks you're right. I do actually or did have a reference book somewhere, I thought it was in our caravan as I used it mainly when we traveled north each winter but somehow it seems to have disappeared. Must find a replacement.....
