Glossy Ibis find

Yesterday morning, a pre-work visit to the patch was rewarded with a fly over Rock Pipit, the obliging Bittern and this Glossy Ibis flying out of roost with six Little Egrets. Yesterday evening, Mike Weedon watch the Ibis return to Deeping Lakes and this morning a group of us watch it leave once again, heading north along the Welland. 

Josh Jones relocated it near Crowland Water tower and it attracted a steady stream of admirers. Just the third record for Deeping Lakes (fly through in December 2020 and the first, a long stayer, in December 2013/January 2014).
