Wilson's Phalarope

After playing it cool for several days I eventually got round to try for this bird which had by all accounts, been leading a bit of a merry dance as it flitted betwixt Cley and Salthouse. With the pager reporting it as showing on Pat's Pool at Cley, an appointment just 2 mins down the coast was all the excuse I needed to nip along to here and get good, if distant, views of the Wilson's Phalarope, a small wading bird from North America. This was only the second one I've seen in Britain, the first was about a million years ago at Staines Reservoir in Surrey (1984 I think!)
