Graham Roblin found this Red-necked Phalarope on a sandy scrape at Kenfig, this afternoon. He got the news out quickly and many birders were able to enjoy the bird if not the trek! Plumage was maybe a little drab and not quite as colourful as one might expect for the species at this time of year. Possibly indicating that this bird is a 1st summer male?
Also showing from this location, albeit briefly, the Purple Heron and a Hobby.
