Grey Phalarope & Pectoral Sandpipers

Friday 17th to Sunday 19th September 2010

I made the journey to Upton Warren, Worcestershire, this afternoon to see a first-winter GREY PHALAROPE (above and below), showing well on the flashes.

Other birds of note were two juvenile Little Stints (below), a Green Sandpiper, two Common Sandpipers and a Peregrine.

The two juvenile PECTORAL SANDPIPERS were still showing from the Robbie Garnett Hide yesterday morning (below), I'd checked them out after work on Friday but went back for a longer look; two Wheatears, a Peregrine, five Bar-tailed Godwits and a Grey Plover were seen from the Holden Tower.
