Sacred Ibis

Sacred Ibis
This large wader was feeding with Eurasian spoonbills on the mud flats at Cantizac, between Vannes and Sene. They are African birds that were introduced into France where they are thriving, which is not necessarily good news for native birds such as terns.

Great shot, yes it is fauna falsification but here the black ibis arrived out of the blue and maintaining their presence for a few years already

Many thanks Jan. We also have a small population of glossy ibis in the UK that arrived of their own accord.

Nice capture Roy.
No I don't think it is very good to introduce new species like that as it often goes horribly wrong.
