Keith Owen discovered a male RED-NECKED PHALAROPE on the mud in Rookery Pit at 1145 hours, the bird then remaining until dusk allowing virtually all of the county's keenest listers to connect. There were also 6 SANDERLINGS present, part of a widespread influx of the species inland today. I shall write a full report tomorrow...........
