Devils Point, Plymouth

The Glossy Ibis came into roost again on Drakes Island this evening with Little Egrets.
The bird came in earlier than last night at 16.55.
I arrived just after it had flown in and in the fading light I didn't hold much hope of seeing it. Fortunately something spooked all the birds on the island and the Glossy Ibis was seen quite well in flight amongst the hordes of gulls and egrets.
A very welcome addition to the Plymouth list.
Thanks to Tom for finding this one. A feather in your cap!!
