For some reason the internet wasn't working this morning. I could get on to facebook and nothing else. I gave up and went and got my haircut.
I was then off to Bishops Stortford and guess what the M11 was closed, which I only found out when I was on it. Eventually got there though! I was intending to go to Anglessey Abbey on Audley End but it started to rain so I headed home.
On a brighter note I got to listen to the excellent CD review on radio 3 and when I got home internet was working. Anyway the Glossy Ibis was still at Rye Meads so..........
It was raining on arrival and very dull so I left the camera in the car and headed to the car park hide. The Ibis was distant but visible .... patch tick!
I went for a stroll around the reserve and saw a male Pintail and a Kingfisher.
