It was really great to see the Grey Phalarope, the most photographed bird in Cornwall for the past few days. I am sooo delighted to see this lovely species.
Cornwall has always been lucky and blessed with so many migrating birds and other wildlife.
The grey phalarope, Phalaropus fulicarius, is a small wader. This phalarope breeds in the Arctic regions of North America and Eurasia. It is migratory, and, unusually for a wader, migrating mainly on oceanic routes and wintering at sea on tropical oceans.
