An unseasonal grey phalarope was found yesterday at the end of the day at Farmoor by Phil Chapman. When it was reported as still present this morning I thought that I would go and pay my respects to this dainty wader. They are remarkably hard to photograph as they are forever moving around but with the trusty superzoom I managed a few shots in rather poor light and a surprisingly chilly wind in the pleasant company of Badger and the Paranoid Birder. The great northern diver was also still about which I'd not caught up with until today.
