Red-necked Phalarope – 1994

Phalaropus lobatusLlydandroed GyddfgochRare visitor

Singles have been recorded at St Twynell’s in c.1900, at St Govan’s Head on 19 September 1950, at the Gann on 16 September 1957 and at Haroldston West on 4 and 5 October 1983. Occasionally phalaropes have been seen flying past Strumble Head which were thought to be Red-necked but did not permit diagnostic views.

Correction: The 1950 record should be St Ann’s Head, not St Govan’s
