Blithfield - Grey Phalarope

It was too tempting to ignore; a Grey Phalarope showing well and having done so for several days!

So, I made the short drive over to Blithfield reservoir for a morning of sheer delight watching and photographing this most obliging juvenile. I even took pictures with my mobile phone (who needs a long lens!)

Shots from every angle, close ups and a few arty wing portaits, this really was an obliging bird. A knot and a couple of Ringed Plover were also on the same bank, equally obliging.

Please note, West Midland Bird Club membership is needed to gain access, apart from the causeway.....

Now my thoughts turn to a couple of days down in Kent and hopes of megas.......
