White plumage, black beak and legs, about 60cms tall
No interactions present.
Were not originally found regularly in the Uk as far as I am aware.Started appearing on the south coast 20-30 years ago( ? the Dart estuary so I believe) I have seen them all over the south and east coasts of England and Wales from Suffolk to Cardiganshire and I suspect they are found elsewhere in the Uk too
Can i ask why this is a sub-species?
In the last two to three years they have moved into Chesham which has lit a passion for them within me!
