Observation details

Still present on pool immediately west of South Hide late afternoon. Photographed and videoed. Potentially first British record if accepted as a wild vagrant. Note: presumably owing to confusion with the old (and pre-split) English name of 'Purple Gallinule', at least one other eBird checklist has wrongly listed this bird as Porphyrio martinicus.
