Red-Necked Phalarope

Wednesday 27th May. Belvide Reservoir, 18:10 - 19:30

Not much to say, other than a superb female Red-Necked Phalarope from the West End Hide. That's the first Red-Necked Phalarope I've seen in Staffs during the spring. And at the time of writing, now two of them!

The bird was too distant for me to dodgyscope, but photos of both Phalaropes can be found on Steve Nuttall's excellent Belvide Birding blog.

Right. Off to Norfolk for the weekend, so I'll see what I can find there............
