A Favourite - Grey Phalarope

Having spent the morning horse riding we managed to catch up with the Grey Phalarope late afternoon at the headland.  It showed very well for us as we walked along the pier and although the sun was going down we did manage to get a few reasonable shots before it flew off across the bay.  We called in at Crookfoot Reservoir prior to going to the headland and saw Bean, White Fronted and Pink Footed Geese along with the Smew, although all distant. 


  1. Very nice photos. I was as pleased to watch the G Phalarope up here in Northumbs, as I was to watch the Greater Yellowlegs. Cheers.

  2. We hope to try to get to see the greater yellowlegs if we can this weekend if it stays around.
