There has been the usual autumn visits to the Midlands reservoirs of Grey phalaropes and as ever they are very approachable.  This one was a Napton Reservoir and had the advantage that getting low down to the water was easy. I did take a lot of picture lying on the floor, but this one is from a sitting height. They are not great poses and this was about the only time it stopped feeding and held its head up.
