Strumpshaw Fen: more Glossy Ibis photos.

Here are some more (possibly better) photos of the Ibis in front of Tower Hide, as well as some Teal in flight. There were quite a few of these on the scrape: not that common a sight here in summer, and a bit of a distraction when looking for the six Garganey. I notice on the various 'round up' blogs that there were over thirty of these delightful little ducks available in the county yesterday: this must surely be the tip of a record-breaking total. Here are a couple more photos!

I've also added more photos of some of the dozen or more Ruff that were present: to paraphrase the Kevin Costner film "Get the water level right and they will come!"
