Bredons Hardwick, Worcs    This evening a GLOSSY IBIS, found by Dave Evans early in the day in S Worcs. It circled over Bredons Hardwick on the Worcs bank, then headed E into Glos, flying high over the Mythe, very probably moving to Ripple Lake where it may have roosted. (Mike Smart).

About The Gloster Birder

My name is Mike King and have lived all my life in Gloucestershire. I am happiest birding around Frampton but I especially love Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. I have birded all over Europe, in the U.S.A. and Canada, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Costa Rica, Belize, Mexico, Dominican Republic, The Gambia, Cape Verde, South Africa and most recently Zimbabwe and Botswana.
