A Brighter Grey Phalarope!!

After getting a soaking on Monday photographing the splendid Grey Phalarope in pouring rain and poor light I headed down the Cuckmere again today to see if it was still there and to try to get some photographs in brighter conditions. Once again in was feeding in the main channel of the pool and not coming particularly close. David Gardiner was sitting nearby so I chatted with him while we waited and hoped it would fly to the smaller pool. Eventually it did just that and then gave us some further opportunities for getting some nice pictures. It even did some preening making sure it was in tip top condition for us!!

Preening Finished.

Grey Phalarope.

What a beautiful little bird!!
