New scunny birds

the day at Alkborough started well with a juvenile Honey Buzzard and got better with a female Redstart then it peaked when I picked up a Wilson's Phalarope; the trouble was it was 800m (measured on the map) from where I was viewing with a 27x50 scope in poor light and that tested my imagination! views from 100m confirmed the ID of this first for the Scunny recording area and a new bird for my UK self found list taking respective tallies to Scunny area total 278 Britain and Ireland self found 325 and British self-found 323; the Scunny area year list meanwhile moves on to 193
