New bird species in Albania
The bird was observed in the Key Biodiversity Area of Narta Lagoon during the autumn migration count in 2014. The Red-necked phalarope is a wader (belongs to the family Scolopacidae from order Charadriiformes) that breeds in wet marshes, pools and osier delta lands on mountainsides above tree limit or on tundra in Arctic zone. It migrates in August-September (mainly non-stop) towards SE across Europe to winter in Arabian Sea, where it leads pelagic life far from land.The Red-necked phalarope is rarely observed during the autumn passage in Europe, including the Balkans, found mainly at coasts, inland marshes and pools.
