A POEM A DAY - GLOSSY IBIS



As we approached the rice paddies in the Marjal near Pego I spotted what looked like a black patch of crows feeding on the stubble. We got out of the car and as we moved nearer the patch rose as one into the air, circling above us. My brother Chris Knight took this photograph and we later identified the birds as glossy Ibis. We watched them fly for some time before they settled on a distant patch of stubble rice. It was an unexpected but thrilling experience.
