Do you know if they roost there overnight or just come in the day?

The Ibis were photographed in 2014 during a "visit", there were in all about 40 birds and they were feeding in the paddocks adjacent to the woodland for a few days and then left. More recently we had a large flock of betwen 50-100 Ibis feeding in our paddock adjacent to the woodland for several weeks just before Christmas but they have now left. In both cases they seemed to be roosting locally.

Okay thanks. I should have checked the date!
