Dirty,rotton, nasty ass twitching ;-D

20/06/10

a year since the upton red necked phalarope ( the fathers day bird)
a late get up, saw a text on my phone reading 'red necked phalarope, flashes. and i was out the house in 20 mins.
the female RED NECKED PHALAROPE shown better than last year feeding around the islands but as always in the AM the sun was shining into the hide so the images are backlit and not very good, but still a little improvement on last year, but ohwell, theres always next year.


12 avocet were feeding around the flash as was 5 LRP.

a stunning bird, in summer clothes of the best type, what a bird.
