Hardly Glossy

Having had a kidney stone removed the other week I was a bit sore. I was without doubt doing the ‘man thing’ of feeling a bit sorry for myself; although I was determined to get out and about as soon as I could. Just hate being confined to barracks.

I’d seen fly-by Glossy Ibis locally last year but I was still keen to see the one that had arrived recently at Felbrigg. So  on Tuesday I made the slow hobble down to the lake.

When I was showing Sharon the photos she remarked glibly ‘hardly glossy’. Well I guess not. This juvenile has yet to make the transition into the splendour of adult plumage … but I thought it was worth the effort.

    Hi Carl
    Sorry to read that you have been unwell; hope all is well now. I know from experience just what it is like to be in the same place.

    Best wishes to you both.
