Phalarope are an enigmatic species of "the north", inevitaby evoking
images of wild and untamed places. One of my (many) favourite species I
am lucky enough to be able to see this species in Norway, have come
across it during trips to Iceland and seen vast swarms at sea various
places during my time as an offshore surveyor.
On my home turf in Øygarden this remains a rare species. In
my second favourite place in Norway, Engerdal, it is a regular enough
bird if you go to the right places:)
