Grey Phalarope

Grey Phalarope

With all eyes on the Porthgwarra Hermit Thrush (which I hope will stay around untill Friday when I hope to be able to get down there)I have to be content with this Grey Phalarope, Phalaropus fulicarius 
Grey Phalarope

which has turned up on my doorstep at Roadford resevoir, fairly unusual to see one of these seagoing waders inland, although I did photograph one at Davidstow a few years ago. This individual is pretty worn on the wings and may not be able to go too far for a while, but seemed pretty happy feeding and preening along the waters edge.
