Glossy Ibis in Pembrokeshire

Over the last week or so Pembrokeshire seems to have become the centre for glossy ibis. There have been three regular birds in various positions near Marloes for over a week. A few days ago these were joined by two more in the St. Davids area. Then two days ago a flock of 23 were seen flying over near Carew. For the full story look at the Pembrokeshire Birds blog.
On Wednesday we decided to have a look for ourselves and went down to Marloes. The three birds were there alongside the road in the 'alternative' site marked in the Pembrokeshire blog. The only problem I had was that I was photographing straight into the sun - so here is one of my efforts:

Taken with my Canon 500mm lens - no converter / extender - ISO1600 (why?) f8 @ 1/1250sec.
