Glossy Ibis in the sun

I thought I'd take advantage of this morning's sunlight to have another go at the Glossy Ibis which is still at Chapel Amble in the flooded meadows.

There was a lot of shooting nearby as pheasants rained from the air but although a bit skittish at first the Ibis took virtually no notice of the shotguns going off within 50 metres or of William and myself as we photographed it in the middle of a part flooded field.

Wish I was there.

I didn't mean to rub it in Sam 'cos you couldn't make it up here, but it was posing well!
