The Phalarope was still present at the ponds at 6:30PM today (24th Jan). Seen 
from outside Eastern Fence at 'overflow' of the 3rd bund in. In presence of 
about 30 other birds (Ducks,Stilts, Coots).  It was vigorously wading and 
feeding across the overflow and wasn't spending time roosting or floating as 
has been the case in other observations no sign of that initial limp.  Observed 
for 40minutes.
It would be great if others would keep us posted as to its presence.  I assume 
it would be diligent in monitoring and noting its condition and how long it 

A good scope is essential if you haven't seen it though, I don't think we will 
see it any closer (unless the ponds open again).
