Yep, Glossy Ibis. Formerly very rare, but increasing rapidly in the last few years following much better protection in Spain; looks like it might be the next 'Little Egret'. Still scarce enough to be worth reporting, though.
Correct Dave,,it is Brading Marshes.
This place is getting better by the year.
BUT,,you can't walk over it,,,the footpaths are quite strict and area is massive,,acres of land.
Great for spotting telescopes,,but unless your lucky and the creature comes to the boundry,,it's not easy with camera's.
This Ibis was right on the boundry fence,,hence the good shots.
