Thomas Spencer at St Brides Beach.
AN 11 year-old boy has captured images of a rare bird while trying out a Christmas present.
Thomas Spencer went to St Brides Beach on Sunday (December 27) to get used to his new camera.
He noticed a lot of bird watchers on the beach who were trying to capture a shot of a rare grey phalarope.
The grey phalarope is seen around 200 times a year in the UK, with Birdwatch magazine recording previous sightings at Strumble Head.
