Glossy Ibis and Cattle Egrets

2nd & 6th August 2017.

Two visits to Walmsley sanctuary at Wadebridge to see the recent arrival of both Glossy Ibis and Cattle Egrets. Fourteen Ibis have been seen here (I saw seven of them) and it looks like the Cattle Egrets have bred here or nearby as two juvenile birds have been observed along with seven adults.

. Who knows what might be visiting and nesting here in a few years time? The birds were all a little distant for decent photos but nice to just sit and see what turns up ( like the family of Gadwall which swam by).
