Red Necked Phalarope At RSPB Fairburn Ings

Today a Red Necked Phalarope turned up at Fairburn Ings also a Great White Egret was there too. The weather turned out to be great at one point there wasn't hardly a cloud in the sky!

As we arrived we received news that the Great White Egret hadn't been seen for a while so we decided to go to the New Flash (a big lake at Fairburn) because that's were the Red Necked Phalarope had been sighted. As we arrived we saw around about 5 birders looking out onto the lake so we asked one of them if it was there and they replied 'Yes its in front of the family of Mute Swans' so we looked out onto the lake and then we spotted it! It was giving decent views which allowed us to get a good look at it also we managed a few shots of this cracking bird!

 By this time the lighting started to go so we couldn't get as good shots.
