Glossy Ibis and Green-winged Teal

It was such a beautiful afternoon that I went out for a few hours and I decided that a look around Teesside would be the best thing to do for a few hours. My two targets were the Glossy Ibis and the Green-winged Teal, I first tried for the Glossy Ibis. A short walk to Haverton viewpoint and a brief wait provided some good if not a little distant views of the Glossy Ibis. Not having my scope really made me appreciate how much I miss it, hope it is back from repair soon.

After my success with the Glossy Ibis I decided to try from the top car park and see if I could see the Green-winged Teal, every bird was very distant and drew a blank. I therefore headed down to the TBC hide and after a short wait I was able to see the Green-winged Teal fairly well both on deck and in flight. Pretty good views through the bins so I was more than happy.

Nice little outing and most enjoyable.

Until next time, Foghorn out!
