Little Egret (Egretta garzetta) by alabang, 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.

I just love Raptors. My fav is the Kestrel, sat on some road kill, this female must have been starving as it rips the guts out of the dead rabbit. And no, its not set up either, its a wild bird.

It is a dead bird, not rabbit. Nice shot though.

In the first image anyway, a bird.  The second doesn't look like a bird at all... And it's a different bird, He said that one is the female Kestrel.  I think that's what he was saying anyway...  ???

And we have another bird whisperer!
Hey thanks for the kind words, and thanks to the others that commented too.
You're very kind.

Streaked Fantail Warbler (Cisticola juncidis) by alabang, on Flickr

The Zitting Cisticola or Streaked Fantail Warbler (Cisticola juncidis), is widely distributed Old World warbler whose breeding range includes southern Europe, Africa (outside the deserts and rainforest), and southern Asia down to northern Australia. A small bird found mainly in grasslands, it is best identified by its rufous rump, lacks any gold on the collar and the brownish tail is tipped with white. During the breeding season, males have a zigzagging flight display accompanied by regular "zitting" calls that has been likened to repeated snips of a scissor. They build their pouch nest suspended within a clump of grass.
