I feel very sorry for all the other birds in the marsh (60+teal, herons egrets gulls Lapwing snipe and more) flushed by idiot twitcher/ photographers who walked out into the marsh. At least one apologised and the ibis had the good sense to hide behind razor wire.

Feel quite sorry for this bird. If I was it, I'd far rather be in the South of France, than paddling around in a puddle inside a razor-wired waterworks compound on the outskirts of glorious Reading. Hey ho.
