Two visits to Walmsley sanctuary at Wadebridge to see the recent arrival of both Glossy Ibis and Cattle Egrets.
Fourteen Ibis have been seen here (I saw seven of them) and it looks like the Cattle Egrets have bred here or nearby as two juvenile birds have been observed along with seven adults.
Who knows what might be visiting and nesting here in a few years time?
The birds were all a little distant for decent photos but nice to just sit and see what turns up (like the family of Gadwall which swam by).
Adrian Davey has had a passion for birds from an early age when he would spend his pocket money on packets of 'Swoop' wild bird food to get close to the birds in the garden. His love of birds and the wildlife found in the world around him has inspired him to try to capture them in photographs as they go about their everyday lives.Living near Launceston on the (Devon side now) Cornwall/Devon border allows plenty of opportunities to visit many beautiful locations, favorites being the North Cornwall coast, the Lands End area and the Exe estuary,as well as traveling further afield both in Britain and overseas.
