CommentWe were surprised to find small flocks of Red-necked Phalarope feeding on the sea off the coast of New Ireland. Subsequent research showed the seas north of New Guinea and se of the Philippines are the favoured feeding area for non-breeding birds that migrate south from from breeding grounds in the Russian Far East. They rarely make it as far south as Australia. Not a great picture but it is the only one we have on the BLP gallery showing this species in flight.
