Glossy Ibis at Strumpshaw Fen

My birding chum Brian T is, of course, a Vol Ranger at the Fen. Today he was taking a walk round when the Glossy Ibis unexpectedly flew through: here's his mail to me and photo:-

The Glossy Ibis is back! Is it the same one which stayed over until a couple of weeks ago (sorry pic not very good -it was a long way off)?? Flew from Tower Hide direction towards Rockland just after 9am this morning - hopefully will return!!

It certainly looks to be the same juvenile. Sadly there is so much water in front of Tower Hide that the Ibis wasn't tempted to land for a poke about.
