Grey Phalarope at the Butt of Lewis

Post by BrianR » 12 Sep 2016, 19:35

Tony's report for this morning: 'in heavy rain and a gale-force wind a juvenile Grey Phalarope was feeding close to the road by the pool before the lighthouse. Between there and the pool 400 yards SW of the lighthouse were four Lapland Buntings. Around Loch Stiapavat the juvenile Little Stint was still present, Snipe numbered at least 50, there were around 25 Black-tailed Godwits and also four Ruffs.' Tony's photos attached.
