WIlson's revisited

Wilson's Phalarope (plus Greenshank), High Wash, Whittlesey, Cambs, 10.5.07 (digiscope), by Mike Weedon

Assistant editor Mike Weedon writes:

Soon after I posted the video below, I got a phone call from Jonathan Taylor, assistant warden of RSPB Nene Washes saying he had a Wilson's Phalarope on the High Wash near Whittlesey – ie very close to Peterborough (indeed in the official Peterborough Bird Club recording area). I was off like a flash and, thanks to local birder Brian Stone climbing onto the roof of his car, we were able to refind it. It was raining, cloudy and dark, but I still managed a couple of digiscoped record shots. What a bird!
