Red-necked Avocet, Helidon Spa, 31st August

Post by gileas » Wed Sep 08, 2010 12:15 pm

Hi all,

I posted this in Winter Beyond not realising that Helidon Spa makes it into the survey area. I had a single Red-necked Avocet feeding actively at Helidon Spa on the 31st August with Stuart Warren. The bird was in amazingly crisp plumage condition, so probably a complete fresh moult. I wonder if it has moved from inland or if it has been hiding somewhere in the southeast?

Regards,
Chris
