Martin Stevens had a GLOSSY IBIS briefly at Gypsy Lane East pits at Broom GP, 16:05. If flew off low east over Jordans Mill (per Steve Blain)

...........and from the man himself

''At about 4ish this afternoon all the Gulls on Gypsy lane east got up and there from nowhere in their midst was a GLOSSY IBIS.My views were brief but it was unmistakable.It then done half a circuit of the largest pool before moving off towards Jordan's mill. Then in a blind panic to find my phone I lost sight off it.It was not that high up so could possibly still be lurking somewhere nearby''
