GREY (RED) PHALAROPE
Familiar to British birders, again the breeding range
spans the Northern hemisphere in Arctic and Subarctic regions, although more to the North. Birds winter at sea
off South America and Africa, although varying numbers occur at sites near the coast in Britain each year
on migration, although rarely in spring.
Unfortunately we rarely see the superb breeding plumage which causes it to be called Red Phalarope
in many countries, one day I'll travel to where they breed.
