KGV - Red Necked Phalarope

I know its not exactly a frame filler but with grey skies and the bird keeping out towards the middle of the Reservoir this was about the best I could do.
Thanks goes to Bradder's for hanging on and getting me in there, as my mates know I am not a twitcher but this bird was not only a London tick but also a UK tick so was well worth the visit and the long walk round the Reservoir.
Other birds present were 2 Black Terns and good numbers of Common Terns including a number of juveniles, also at least 5 Common Sandpipers around the fringes.
