Spotted Munia (Lonchura punctulata) by alabang, on Flickr

The Scaly-breasted Munia or Spotted Munia (Lonchura punctulata), known  in the pet trade as Nutmeg Mannikin or Spice Finch, is a sparrow-sized  estrildid finch native to tropical Asia. A species of the genus  Lonchura, it was formally described and named by Carl Linnaeus in 1758.  Its name is based on the distinct scale-like feather markings on the  breast and belly. The adult is brown above and has a dark conical bill.  The species has 11 subspecies across their range and differ slightly in  size and colour.

This Munia eats mainly on grass seeds apart from berries and small  insects. They forage in flocks and communicate with soft calls and  whistles. The species is highly social and may sometimes roost with  other species of munias. This species is found in tropical plains and  grasslands. Breeding pairs construct dome-shaped nests using grass or  bamboo leaves.

The species is endemic to Asia and occurs from India and Sri Lanka east  to Indonesia and the Philippines. It has been introduced into many other  parts of the world and feral populations have established in Puerto  Rico and Hispaniola as well as parts of Australia and the United States  of America. The bird is listed as of Least Concern by the International  Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).

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.

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

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

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.
