Oooh, shiny shiny

Took a while but, eventually, had good views of the two Glossy Ibis this afternoon. At turns they pottered about in the glorious sunshine, a shimmering vision of burnished copper and verdigris; or, wading under overcast skies, taking on the look of a pair of grumpy, overweight, oil-stained Curlew.

Earlier, whilst wandering in search of the ibis, had the Greenland White-front with Canadas just west of the sea-wall end of Boat Lane; and had a first-winter female Merlin towards the sea-wall end of Saltmarsh Lane, she came up off the deck but proceeded to sit in the top of a hedge preening,... all very nice and prolonged viewy.
