No Glossy but a Barnie

Unfortunatly the Glossy Ibis managed to suddenly dissapear! We arrived at 3:30pm and there was still no sign or reports by the time we left at 4:45pm. However still a good days birding with: Goldeneye, Scaup, and Pink-footed Geese at Cresswell Pond.

On to Drurdige Pools to look for the Otters but nowt' but Redshank, 2 Dunlin, Mute Swans, Moorhen, Mallard, and Grey Heron. Then on the way back a fellow birder spotted a Barn Owl. We got about a 5 second view before is dissapeared.

Other birds of the day included: Lapwings, Gulls, Godwits sp (I didn't pay yo much attention, to busy looking for Ibis), Sparrowhawk, Kestrel, Curlew, Wigeon, Teal, Greenshank, and that's about it.

Not a bad day all in all.
