Ibis on the Otter

Just a quick update today. I spent a couple of hours on the Otter Estuary in Devon today - walking inland along the river. After a short while I managed to locate my target species, the long staying Glossy Ibis. The bird showed well (as shown in the pictures and video below) feeding in a small pool behind the hide. My year total for the UK now stands at 295 (BOU). Other species recorded included; Teal (23), Black-tailed Godwit (7), Lapwing (26), Snipe (3), Wigeon (14), Cetti's Warbler (1) and Water Rail (1). Only 5 more species until i will have achieved my goal and can return to some less hectic birding!
