Glossy Ibis


I've just had the privilege of seeing the rare Glossy Ibis Plegadis falcinellus in Filey. It has been at East Lea and the Dams for the past 9 days. They breed in South Europe and migrate to Africa in the winter but has probably been blown off course by strong southerly winds. I saw the bird this morning at East Lea with a lot of other bird-watchers courtesy of Jack Whitehead of FBOG and it was a truly awesome experience to see it.
