I was in the Velator reserve, when a message came through on the Devon Rares site on Instagram. From Tim Jones who reported a Grey Phalarope on the same pond as the Red-necked Phalarope a couple of weeks back. So I tidied up what I was doing and walked the 200 metres to the pond. Like the other one, this one took a while to show, but even at distance it clearly had a stockier bill. Thanks for the heads up Tim!

85 plus Godwits on the scrape, But as usual not much showing in the reserve this late in the day.
