I saw a bird from the bus at the airport today, so I got off to take its photo.

Turns out it was a Hadada Ibis.

It's a brown ibis with very interesting iridescent green wings. I think it should be in Africa.

It's closer to Africa than a certain migratory duck !
Will you be posting the Ibis photo onto your webpage?

The bird is still in the area. I saw it again tonight at about 5.30. It's in the area of the car park where ther approach road turns left after the crossing.
