White Ibis

Report from Bill & Els : They saw a White Ibis at Rosetta High School playing fields yesterday afternoon, Thursday 9/2, "while the sprinklers were working". A common bird elsewhere in Australia and seen here somewhat rarely, but 'irrupts' occasionally, when quite large numbers are reported.

We have seen a couple of White Ibis at Bonoorong Wildlife Park, which we're informed are virtually permanent resident there, though quite at liberty to come and go as they please. Perhaps the odd bird which turns up now and then along the river suburbs is just visitng there from Bonoorong?
