Hi all,

I would be interested to know if the Glossy Ibis at Middleton is the same as the Belvide bird. The Belvide bird has some inner primaries missing from the left wing which shouldn't be too hard to see.

Hi all,

just seen a photo of the Middleton Glossy Ibis showing the left wing with all primaries intact, so it's not the Belvide bird.

Cheers Steve
