Grey Phalarope at Hove Lagoon

Grey Phalarope, Phalaropus fulicarius
On Saturday we had blue sky so I made my third trip to Hove Lagoon where the Grey Phalarope was continuing to entertain everyone in the kid’s paddling pool. The recent storms have blown it off course from its Arctic breeding grounds and it arrived on January 5th, probably on the way to West Africa. This must be the most photographed bird in Sussex judging by the number of lenses pointed at it.
someone has put mealworms by the pool side.
