|GREY PARTRIDGE (COCKERHAM MARCH 2013)|
By 3:30, the Phalarope made a distant appearance, in one of the meanders. It was just a black spot! It stayed around that area for about half an hour, until a Buzzard flew over and the next time I looked, it had disappeared.

Most of the birders had gone, I also saw someone I recognised but they didn't stay as they had already been there for a few hours before. At 4:20 we spotted the Phalarope in the middle of the channel, which were better views than before, but not the best, due to the reflection of the sun. Unfortunately it was only there for a minute as it was rudely disturbed by a defensive Shelduck. It was later spotted back in the meander. We decided to head back home, I'm hoping to go back on Wednesday if it is still there.
