I usually only see in Spoonbills in Norfolk once a year, but they have been on the Wirral for a couple of weeks, and not just one. Seven have been reported at one stage, but there were just two for me to look at, high up at the roost site on Saturday morning.
Such an unusual looking bird. They look almost prehistoric and the bill looks so cumbersome. This pair were busy preening each other. I guess, because it's so difficult to do on your own.
