1st winter Grey Phalarope.
On Tuesday 24th September news of a Grey Phalarope in Grenham Bay filtered through the birds news services , i couldn't get there until the afternoon and was pleasantly surprised to see the Grey Phalarope close in the pools near the promenade.
Here are a selection of photos :
The local Black headed Gulls were not to keen on the Grey Phalarope and mobbed it a couple of times which flush it at one point and the Grey Phalarope flew out to sea.
Eventually after approx 10 minutes it flew back into the pool and continued to show well to the small gathering of birders present.
Flying back in.
Coming into land.
Good to catch up with Steve A, Chris G (who did well picking out a distant Arctic Tern) & Nigal J.
