Curlew Sandpiper and a very brief encounter with a Glossy Ibis.

On Thursday we visited Saltholme to see if the Glossy Ibis had stayed over night, when we arrived we were told that it had not been seen since first thing, as we were talking about what to do next the Ibis flew over our heads and into the distance, not to be seen again .............well at least we didn't dip out on seeing it!
Friday was quiet again but a early evening visit to the Tidal Pools at Greatham Creek gave us a nice Curlew Sandpiper our first of the year.
