Little Egret (Egretta garzetta) (external link) by Paolo Dolina (external link), on Flickr

The Little Egret is more delicate-looking than any other heron-like bird which occurs in Britain. It is much smaller than a Grey Heron, with snowy white plumage, a long pointed black bill and black legs with strikingly yellow feet.
Habitat

Feeds by the edges of lakes, reservoirs, rivers, brackish lagoons and saltpans. Breeds in waterside trees and bushes.
Behaviour

The plumes which are present in spring serve to emphasise the threat and appeasement gestures given at the nest.
Migration

Most of the European population migrates west and south, mostly to north Africa but also, to an increasing degree, to the european side of the Mediterranean and the Atlantic coasts. After fledging, juveniles disperse almost randomly from July to September. This movement is presumably governed by prevailing feeding conditions.

thanks SQZ,
Its about having a good hide, waiting, waiting, and once the bird lands keeping very quiet and only moving the lens very slowly and no burst mode :) (send me an email or PM for more info if you want, then we dont spam this thread).
Heres a few cormorants, at 840mm with both 1Dx and some with 5D3

dioladetus:

Currently have 5D3 and will be purchasing 600 f4 II w/TCs very soon. What are your thoughts on upgrading to a 1DX for Birding? I know the AF system is superior but what are your hands on findings?

Thanks!

Hi Rob,
I think the 1Dx does a much better job. The 5D3 is great, the 1Dx is better :)
The bigger battery capacity helps speed up the AF a good bit.
The tracking capabilities of the 1Dx is much better, the shutter lag and fps is of course much better, that is also very important for birding I think. I like the controls and sturdy feel of the 1Dx better also, there is just something about the big houses.
