Glossy Ibis success!!
Since my last blog I have been busy (domestically!) but have managed to get a couple of very brief sightings of the elusive Glossy Ibis during the past couple of days. However this morning dawned bright and sunny so hopes were high of a good viewing. At 7.30am on Breech Pool a group of enthusiastic birders gathered, but not until 9.05am did the head of the Glossy appear from a ditch behind a chunk of sedge. It did finally give itself up, but only for a few seconds before disappearing back into the sedge...too far away for even a record shot. Nevertheless a nice bird for the memory bank!
