Glossy Ibis

Lade - 0730hrs - cool, cloudy, light airs - Almost the first bird this morning was the Glossy Ibis flying over the back of south pit towards the bird reserve; surely its not roosting on my local patch... From the aerial mound a light south-bound passage of Mipits, Skylarks, Goldfinches, Siskins, Reed Buntings and a single Brambling. In the sallows 2 Chiffchaffs, Goldcrest and Greater pecker, plus quite a few Great Tits.
By late afternoon the weather had changed completely with a strong south-wester blowing up-Channel, but much milder. Three Brents flew over and a couple of Swallows skimmed the water.
