More Phal record shots

I went down again this morning to see if this gorgeous bird was still there, and it was! It is still prone to going just out of sight behind the Nene bank, but occasionally comes out to play. I have included three different views; the rear showing the striking white stripe. I was cursing the wind again, but there's always something!

WIlson's Phalarope on High Wash

This splendid bird was found by Jonathan Taylor this afternoon (10.5.07). Doubtless it is the female from Grafham, which was not seen today after about a week there.

Blue-headed Wagtail at Blackbush Drove

© Will Bowell
This female type Yellow Wagtail was collecting nesting material from the side of Blackbush Drove this morning. From the greyish, blue crown and nape and white throat and supercilium, it would appear this is of the race flava ('Blue-headed' Wagtail), more typically found in central and eastern Europe.

Willow Warbler at Ferry Meadows

Photographed in wooded area South of Gunwade Lake. Having watched it for a while, I noticed that it moved from perch to perch in a confined area and I just waited until it returned to the best one for the shot.
