Tue 11 Dec Glossy Ibis Forde Pond
Following a report by Con Boekel on Canberrabirds email list, I duly found 1 Glossy Ibis on the roadside pond. I had also followed up the original report of a 'possible' Glossy Ibis on 2 December but without success on that occasion. 1 Latham's Snipe also present and 3 Superb Parrots flying over.
