With migration at a standstill June is still a great time for something unexpected. So it was not wholly surprising when a female Red necked Phalarope turned up at BMW. This is a rare bird on the Wirral with only a handful of records including another at this same site but on the IMF side during the early 1990's.
Other birds on site included a 1st summer Med Gull, Little Ringed Plover and a Greenshank.
A few record shots were rattled off for the sake of posterity! Also a short video by SRW here .http://youtu.be/ghhjSM3lhi0
