At lunch time today I was up a hill near Aberdeen, basking in the sun, watching a displaying Goshawk. By 7pm I was back home and news that the Red-necked Phalarope at Grindon Lough was still present had me heading out west. This is very much my bogey bird and true to form there was no sign when I got there. 2 Little Stint creeping along the far bank were no consolation. A lot of the waders had gone to roost, so there is hope for tomorrow.
