I don't KNOW anything but suspect you may be wrong. The records of Cattle Egret in Lincolnshire appear to be as follows (ignoring some early 20th century releases):

1986
North Hykeham, Oct 12th-26th
1992
Messingham, May 6th-10th
Langham, Hogsthorpe, four, May 7th
2008
Saltfleetby, Jan 30th-31st; same Little Cawthorpe, Feb 8th-18th
2010
Donna Nook, Oct 10th to Nov 18th
2013
Tetney Lock & Thoresby Bridge, Sep 7th-27th
Gibraltar Point, Sep 27th, assumed same as Tetney
2014
Susworth, Aug 3rd-11th
Willow Tree Fen, Nov 28th-29th
2016
Deeping Lakes, Jan 12th-14th
Crook Bank, Theddlethorpe, Apr 17th
Stallingborough, Nov 4th
Covenham Res, Nov 8th
Skidbrooke, Nov 13th-Dec 21st
2017
Deeping Lakes, Feb 18th-May 16th
Saltfleetby-Theddlethorpe, Mar 1st-10th
Gibraltar Point, Mar 19th-20th
Alkborough Flats, Mar 21st-24th
Anderby Creek, Apr 16th
Frampton Marsh, two, May 30th-Jun 3rd, then one intermittently (?) to Jul 10th
Baston Fen, three, Aug 24th
Saltfleetby, Sep 9th-13th, then two, Sep 14th-18th, then three, Sep 23rd

All were single birds unless stated. Note that 2016 and 2017 records are preliminary and unverified.

However, there have been three together before, at Baston Fen a month ago (per BirdGuides - I know no more about that) - and also four together near Mablethorpe on 7th May 1992. Those birds were believed to be part of a group of five that had been in Yorkshire the previous day. I am too young to remember that event but have no reason to doubt it being a good record: it was accepted by BBRC (as Cattle Egret was then considered by them).

Thanks Andrew for the clarification. Wasn't sure, that's why I asked the question.
It's good that you have the data to hand.

They are becoming more widespread and I suspect we will witness more multiple sightings in the future.
