I needed a bit of a jolt to shake me out of my post holiday lethargy and a message saying there was a female summer plummaged Grey Phalarope on East Marsh, Brandon certainly did the trick. In windy conditions the bird showed well from the east Marsh hide spending its time on a small stoney island. Not surprisingly this rare spring migrant proved a big attraction and a real treat for local and a few not so local birders.
Grey Phalarope, Brandon Marsh
Later I found myself heading for Shustoke Res. where a Little Tern had been seen earlier in the day.No Little Tern but some compensation in the form of an interesting 1st summer Arctic Tern.
