The Glossy Ibis reappeared just minutes after I got there around 12 ish. It was just beyond pond looking north from Haverton viewpoint. Staying mainly in the same area going in and out of what looked like a little gully in the grassland between two bushes. Also looking in the same direction a Bittern flew over the lake and into the right side reed bed, a Marsh Harrier also accross the grassland in the mid distance.

Newburn 13.12:
-Watched the Black Redstart flycatching on the rock armour (about 50 yds short of where it becomes concrete, as opposed to stone).

I returned to Haverton Watchpoint for another session as the Glossy Ibis had been reported as still present (apparently reappearing just after noon), but at 13.50 when I arrived back no observers remained. Nevertheless after about 20 minutes scanning, I located the bird at 14.12 and watched it intermittently until 14.40 when I left. It appeared to be feeding OK and made several short flights during this time.
