Glossy Display.....

Got the news last night, via Mike Lynch LDBWS site, that a Glossy Ibis was feeding at the back of Keyline builder’s merchants. Popped down at 10-ish to find Dan already getting excellent views of the bird. The bird tended to be just by the fence and looked superb. Dan mentioned it was an adult, speckled neck, and no ring. Great patch tick, and then I got thinking about roost potential and headed to Skerton Weir Heronry at dusk, and after dozens of Cormorants had flown in the Ibis appeared, double patch tick, great day.
