Grey Phalarope at Ferry Meadows CP

A wonderful cycle-to-work find by Brian Stone this morning at 8.30am was this lickle chap (an advanced 1st-winter judging by a few retained dark tertials and coverts). It was a flighty fella and called frequently (like a soft, clipped Coot call). Unfortunately, it couldn't get settled and flew off high at 10am. These shots were the best I could muster. A very nice BIGBY tick, FM tick, year tick and only my second Grey Phalarope in the Peterborough area. One of the birds of the year, locally.
