Look! There’s a Flock of Ibis near Ramsgate Beach!

Ibis on the promenade at Ramsgate

I guess that, for those who frequent the Botany Bay foreshores, Ibis are not an uncommon sight.

Most of my recreation time is spent in our local bushland park, so when we travel to Ramsgate and other places on the Botany Bay foreshores, the sight of Ibis is a novelty and a treat.

They are elegant birds and quite impressive, though people say they are scavengers.

I like to look at their most positive attribute: their graceful appearance.

    Shouldn’t they be trotting about the banks of the Nile?

    They are amazing and I was especially drawn to their long beaks. Great to see them. Hope you have a wonderful week.

    Yes, they are scavengers. They were very rarely, if ever seen as far south as Sydney when I was young. Their range has extended much farther south since then.
    On South Bank in Brisbane, they can be a bit of a pest at the outdoor cafes. They can be intimidating with their size and long beaks when they sit on the chair opposite you at the table!

      I can well believe that, Linda! πŸ™‚
      I was at Ramsgate a few days ago and didn’t see any.
      Thanks for your comment. πŸ™‚
