A couple of scarce visitors.

Frampton Marsh RSPB Reserve on the Lincolnshire coast nearly always produces some scarce or rare visitor/vagrant owing to it's favoured position at the Northern edge of the Wash. Being a large reserve many of these birds are often at some considerable distance and can only be ID'd with a 'scope, but these two were a bit nearer, although still upwards of 80 metres away.

Glossy Ibis (almost becoming a resident here):



Spoonbill, three have been present on the reserve for a while now:



E-M1 plus Canon EF400mm f5.6L plus 1.4x TC

Re: A couple of scarce visitors.

It doesn't seem that long ago Egrets were a good find and a Spoonbill exceptional. I seem to remember searching Frodsham Marshes for a Spoonbill a couple of decades ago.

Re: A couple of scarce visitors.

nice captures David, both are becoming more or less annual visitors down here in Dorset now and I remember seeing a flight of Spoonbills up at Minsmere last Summer, a cracking sight

Re: A couple of scarce visitors.

Great shots David.

We've had both these species on our reserve this year but I missed the Ibis and only got distant shots of the Spoonbill. Both seem to be becoming regular visitors down here too.

Thanks for sharing.

Nice to see these, we only have two Egrets this year so far.
