Cley Marshes

Returning from our trip to Minsmere we stopped of at Cley for a look,the information board outside the centre said a Sacred Ibis had been seen the day before so we thought we would give it a go.The field where the Ibis had been seen the day before only produced this Egyptian Goose.
Further round by one of the pools we came across this Little Egret about to have its breakfast and looking very dapper,but still no Ibis !.
We were about to give up on the Ibis when word came through that it had been spotted in a field about half a mile from the reserve trouble was it was alongside a busy narrow road with no parking,the only thing to do if I wanted to see it was to take life in our hands and carry the gear along which was a bit of a struggle to say the least eventually we came across a black and white dot hiding in the only patch of thistles in the field.
 Good views were not going to be had from this shy and distant bird,just then it decided to surprise us both by taking flight here's a couple of panicky B I F s .
