Hi all,


The Red-necked Phalarope was still present this morning at the Seaford Swamp and can be viewed from Mike's broken gate access point.  The bird was seen by at least six observers this morning between 08:30 and 10:00.


Whilst the bird did not seem too nervous, it is moving around a bit. It was last seen sheltering behind some reeds slightly to the North (about 40 to 50m) from the two posts.  There are also a couple of Swamp Harriers to the north which is upsetting some of the birds.


Other birds at the site included White-fronted Chat, Black-winged Stilt, Sharp-tailed Sandpiper and a Royal Spoonbill.
