Glossy Ibis- Velator

Arriving at the reserve this morning, I was disappointed there were no Egrets in the field (up to three most days recently) but no sooner had I thought this, than 2 sprung up from some long grass and headed towards the reserve. They were followed by a Glossy Ibis! It circled and returned to land a few yards from  me!

When I left it again flew up and followed a Little Egret to perch in one of the conifers in  the reserve - so it officially goes on the reserve list!

A flock of over 50 Goldfinch were buzzing around the reserve too.
