I spent a pleasant morning with Richard and Tom at Bells Pond on Monday. The idea was to get some amazing shots of the ibis - which had performed extremely well on the previous day. Luck was not with me however, as our only views in the morning were of the ibis in flight - landing at Druridge... then (from Druridge)... heading back to Bells Pond. By the time I'd got back to Bells... the bird was back at Dru... and I was late for work. Maybe later then?
A brave merlin was chasing carrion crow around the fields at Bells.
