Glossy Ibis
Plegadis falcinellus
A Glossy Ibis was seen flying north over Severn Beach at about 3.30pm on 14th October 2009. Luckily I received a telephone call from the finder and I was already stood at New Passage and within a minute it flew low over the Pines and continued heading up Northwick Warth. It landed for a few minutes but after being mobbed by Crows it took off and flew towards Aust Cliff. Below are a series of images of the bird in flight.

and showed very well during the 10 day stay.
