Glossy Ibis

 We are used to migratory birds arriving from colder climes to overwinter in our wetland areas but sometimes birds from warmer countries arrive like these young glossy ibis. Some birds breed in Southern Europe and while most head for Africa in winter some end up in the UK.These two have been seen regularly flying in to roost at Slimbridge WWT at dusk.
