An incredible 14 Glossy Ibis at Walmsley sanctuary this evening. 31st July 2017.

A flock of 14 Glossy Ibis turned up today at our reserve at Walmsley sanctuary near Wadebridge.

Very unusual sighting especially this early in the year.

We've had the odd individual bird in the past but never this many.

Fantastic to see!

Something spooked them earlier and they flew out of the reserve toward the estuary but then turned full circle and came back and landed in the exact place they'd left from.

Hopefully they'll stay around a few days!
