Red-necked Phalarope:  One of the things I don't like about living in Wigan is that I cant make it across to BMW as often as I would like.

So when I do its always great, especially when you trow in a brand new tick!
One of the guys in the hide said he first saw a picture of a red-necked phal in a book when he was 12 and it has only taken him 50 years to actually see one, then Mark Payne pipped up and said its only taken Austin 30 years!!

 Well cheers dude, but its now firmly on my list.
