The Glossy Ibis was seen at Coonagh again today shortly after the morning high tide(Tom Tarpey). The bird was feeding in the middle pond initially before eventually moving to the pond to the east of the north tunnel portal. The bird remains very wary and is best viewed by staying close to the motorway fence and scanning the area around the middle pond.
