Glossy Ibis giving good views again yesterday morning whilst occasionally be 'shooed' by a horse in the field. Talked to few of the locals who were all very nice and interested in what all the fuss was about. But when I went back to my car both my battery was flat and my phone was flat!

So, Hi Craig, yes it was me! Sorry I didn't stay for a chat but I was well-soaked by then and preoccupied with getting my car jump-started from a very kind young lady in the farm. The things we do for birding!  no

Managed to add this bird to my Wigan borough list this afternoon on a tick and run mission (one of those I've criticised twitchers for before now hmmno. Many thanks to the birder who pointed out its whereabouts (sorry didnt ask your name) and if that was Martyn Jones(?) sorting his car out, then apologies again for not saying hello!

Ibis still present showing well despite poor weather. As I arrived even before getting out of the car I saw the bird flying (it gets spooked by the horses often but always seems to land back in the same field). Got decent photos, and the bird appears to be feeding very well. When you enter Firs Park Crescent turn right to get to the field. Also present: singles of meadow pipit, buzzard and pied wagtail.

Glossy Ibis present again today and as at 12:55 showing close to the road at the side of 23 Firs Park Crescent by the gate to the stables.

The bird is mobile in the immediate area though and as a result can be difficult to view due to a lack of access to some of the area. Please park sensibly when visiting the site.

Well what can you say; they should have looked on here first wink.

Truth is that Bird Information Ltd took the call directly from the observer of the bird and they rang me direct immediately after. They of course put the news out first, along with the correct location so I've no idea how RBA came to their own conclusion confuse
