13 degrees, continuous rain all morning. Dull and grey all afternoon.
Anglers CP: A juvenile Red-necked Phalarope was in the SW corner at 13.00hrs. It was flying around and then dropping on various parts of the lake. It was last seen at 13.35hrs when it flew along the western shore and landed on the water off the north bank. It is presumed to have left from there as searches in the area were fruitless and there were no further sightings.
Also present: Water Rail 1 and 1 adult Great Black-backed Gull.
Vis. Mig from the Main Hide: Turnstone 2 N at 09.00hrs, Dunlin 1 S at 09.25hrs, Swallow 7 S, Snipe 2 N, Swallow 12 and a Redwing flew over.
The Gull Roost tonight held 832 Lesser Black-backed, 21 Yellow-legged and 10 Herring Gulls.
