Edderthorpe, Sunday

Bird of the day was undoubtably the GREY PHALAROPEwhich appeared on the flash around 09.40 and showed well to all visitors for the remainder of the day (until 17.15 at least). This is only the second record of this species for Edderthorpe and is likely to be the bird seen briefly at Old Moor yesterday. It is also National WeBS count day and the following are todays highlights;- Whooper Swan 3 north 10.40, Mallard 200, Shoveler 62, Teal 380, Shelduck 3, Cormorant 15, Lapwing 510, Golden Plover 850, Dunlin 23, Ruff 4, Rock Pipit 1.
