Red-necked phalarope, Frodsham No. 6 bed

This smart red-necked phalarope has been on Frodsham no. 6 bed for the past three days. I think it's a female but it's certainly not as bright as some I've seen. Sometimes phalaropes can be nice and close, but not this bird which today was at least 300m away.

Who'd have thought you'd be able to get a video on your phone of a bird little more than the size of a starling at a distance of 300m! This was my fourth red-necked phalarope at Frodsham.

This raven was obviously injured or sick. What a bird, massive bill and look at those colours certainly not just black.
