A text from Brian Stretch just as I was going to work alerting me to a Female Red-necked Phalarope on the Flashes meant that the work day was going to seem longer than usual! But all was not to fear and when I arrived at the flashes around half 7 she was still present.

Possibly the same bird that dropped in for a day on fathers day last year? Will it happen again next year? Also present were 3 Green Sand and its nice to see the 2 LRP chicks have fledged as well as the 3 Avocets.

Long Blog posts are to much effort at the moment. Might try again in the summer for some time, but for know thought I'd show you my first attempts at recording bird song. Brought a mic for my iPod touch from Amazon for £5 quick download of a free app and I was off to Straw's Bridge NR to record this, comments appreciated.
