Glossy Ibis shines at Emsworth

While we were staying near Chichester, news came in of a Glossy Ibis that had been around for a few days. In 15 minutes I was there. Two other photographers were on the bird, which was slowly making its way up a water channel towards us.

There were a number of dogs off the lead and someone talking very loudly nearby. Shortly after I took this photo, it took fright and flew off. This photo shows the iridescent green in the wings.

I was happy to get the photos I did.
