Julie has just sent me this photograph (taken by Chris) of the juvenile white ibis that has been at Kent Wildlife Trust reserve at Sevenoaks (Sevenoaks Wildfowl Reserve) for some weeks now. The white ibis is apparently an American species but whether this juvenile is from there or is an escape from captivity is unknown (by me). As you can see the juvenile bird is not white! Sally and I have seen it a couple of times and it does seem to be quite at home at Sevenoaks and has obviously found a good food source. We have a Gravesend RSPB Local Group meeting there in 3 weeks time (Saturday 14th March at 10.00) but will it still be there……….?
