The Ibis was back yesterday, I hadn't noticed him around for a while, thought he might have gone AWOL.

A Pheasant flew down near me today chasing a grasshopper while I was working, so I downed tools and edged past it to go and get the camera, luckily it stayed there but it had eaten the grasshopper by the time I got back.

Another very striking bird for your back garden Greg - You'll need to set up a hide and charge admission soon :D .

Great grab there Greg. Too bad the grasshopper disappeared somewhere?

Besides the ticket box, you'll need a bird blind for viewing birds so to not disturb them. ;^)
