Glossy Ibis at Penclacwydd

phonescope shot through Liz's 'scope

Whilst doing some botanical work yesterday, our group decided to make a small diversion and we popped into the Sir Peter Scott hide to look for Small Red-eyed Damselflies. A visiting birdwatcher, Elizabeth Boughey, was the only person in there and she drew my attention to a bird she was unfamiliar with - I was amazed to see a Glossy Ibis at close range, this constituting only the second record of this species at Penclacwydd. Well done Liz!
