Blithfield - another White winger!!

Atlantic Storms have wreaked havoc on Grey Phalarope passage with many birds stranded in the UK at both coastal and inland sites. OK, so I was being optimistic in the extreme thinking one would have dropped in at VP (or anywhere else in Shropshire for that matter!)....

Common sense got the better of Yvonne and myself, opting for a Staffs session for hopefully a White-winged Black Tern as well!!

The Blithfield Phalarope had moved on, or was elusive in the extreme (no-one reported it that day). At least the White winged Tern was still present although always fairly distant. Never mind, this is my second one in three days - not to be sniffed at!!!

Excuse the record shots......










There were at least two other Grey Phalaropes reported in the Midlands the previous day - how about a try at Chasewater???
