A Glossy Ibis and a new approach!

We have just returned from a week in Suffolk at Dunwhich Heath, next door to Minsmere RSPB.

A first for us was not one but two Gloss Ibis on 9 October on the scrape from West Hide, always distant but very much a first. My shots are purely for the record, I want to record my photographic highs and lows and show my birding highlights on this blog. I am sorry you only get an idea of this bird in the location.



I have never (sorry to you digiscopers) thought of digiscoping but as the Ibis was so distant and looked good through the scope I hand held a compact to the scope, did'nt really work but that was due to me. The third image is my first digiscoped effort!

Thats good for a first effort Mike. It does need a lot of experimenting with different cameras and scope lens size as well.

Thanks for all your comments.
Roy, you are very kind. There was a binocular display at Minsmere and we were talking to the guys about what is required, I might explore further, not as good as SLR but enables arecord shot sometimes when my kit will not.

Thanks very much - Kids Resources & Pablo.
