Postby Michael Szabo » Wed Jul 27, 2022 3:16 pm

Does anyone know of a report of a Wilson's Phalarope near Blenheim in Jan/Feb 2022 please?

I cannot find one in this forum but someone else says they recall seeing the report - if anyone knows about this or has any further details please could you post a reply here.

Thanks in advance,
Michael

Hi Michael,

It was a case of mistaken Blenheim. There was a WIlsons Phalarope at Blenheim Sewage lagoons in Ontario Canada that accidentally got posted at the New Zealand Blenheim sewage lagoons.

The mistaken report was in early June; not January or February.
