Glossy Ibis' overnight trip to Germany

We've reported on interesting movements of colour-ringed Glossy Ibis before, and even mentioned birds continuing their journeys from the UK to Germany. This pattern was mirrored this week, involving a group of four Glossy Ibis, including the colour-ringed bird 01N1, that had spent a couple of weeks at Cantley Marshes in Norfolk.

These birds first appeared in east Anglia in mid-February, settling at Cantley on 17th March. They were last seen there on Tuesday morning (27th) but by Wednesday had moved to Braunschweig in Germany where the flock of four were photographed: an impressive movement of over 600km in one day!
