Upton Warren - Red-necked Phalarope

The Fathers day bird again? Had one here last year (21.6.09) on the way back from Norfolk! This year I was stuck in Shropshire - my only committment - picking up Gemma from Manchester airport later in the day, I was hoping for a decent bird to drop into the North West? Upton Warren was a sort of detour, albeit in the wrong direction but Red-necked Phalarope are always nice to see.....








Just as in 2009, the bird was pretty distant, spending most of it's time swimming - surface feeding then snoozing. A few record shots.....










The Avocets were doing what they always do, seeing off any interlopers who dared to get too close.....








A few pics of the Avocets to follow (if I get chance)......
