Nearly Glossy Ibis.

Like buses these are in Cheshire - you wait for ages for one and then another two turn up in quick succession. Following on from my long awaited 'first' for Cheshire in 2008 (this was the Southport bird that came south for a few days break) another turned up last year at Burton Mere Wetlands RSPB  (but was elusive and played hard to get) and this was quickly followed by another at Sandbach Flashes this year. This bird was initially very elusive but seems to have got into a regular routine but I resisted the temptation until the sun came out!

Another good local bird(s) this morning were a group of  3 Crossbills in the Scots pines on Eastham golf course.
