a-purple-heron-006 According to this article a pair of purple herons are nesting in the UK for the first time. The birds are more commonly seen in Europe, although they visit Britain in small numbers each year. The pair that have nested near Dungerness are currently being protected and it is hoped that they might be the first to successfully breed here. For now they are receiving round the clock protection with Kent police helping the RSPB to protect the nest. It will be interesting to see if they manage to hatch any eggs.
