Red-necked phalarope

As the title says - red necked phalarope currently showing on South Marsh East. From the distant views so far we are reasonably sure it is a male:

Other sightings today so far have included grey heron soaring over D, 2 common buzzard, cream crown marsh harrier on North Marsh, 2 crossbill in D woods and kingfisher on South Lagoon.

Best bird of yesterday was a reported little gull on D res.

Reserve open til dusk tonight for anyone who wants to try, and first light tomorrow. Normal Admission applies, please respect site rules and parking arrangements. Further details will follow as we get them.
