An early start saw me at Stubb Mill by around 6.30, scanning the pools and reedbeds at the eastern end of the reserve for the reported pair of Glossy Ibises. No joy, but three Great White Egrets and ten Spoonbills roosting distantly were noteworthy: just like being back on the Somme.
A walk around the whole loop added little apart from scores of Four-spotted Chasers and Norfolk Hawkers. I was on the point of leaving when I thought I'd take one last look at Bishop's Reedbed - and there they were! Distant but, as always, terrific to see!
