Where to watch Red-necked Phalarope
In summer, Fetlar is thought to be the best place in Britain to get good views of Red-necked Phalarope. There are loads of other breeding waders too, along with skuas and a range of other seabirds.

If you want to make the Red-necked Phalaropes at the RSPB reserve your first port of call, follow the B9088 from the ferry terminal at Hamars Ness six miles eastward to the other end of the island and park at the small car park on the right just before Loch of Funzie. The phalaropes usually feed around the edge of the loch next to the road and are easily viewable, often just a few feet away. You can also get excellent views of them at a hide overlooking the mires of Funzie. More here from Birdwatch
