Great shot Karen. I've never heard of this bird. And Daniele, excellent ID. Incredible difference between breeding plumage and "eclipse" I had to look it up to see what it was. Again PN is "making" me learn :-) Thanks Karen & Daniele. I +1'd Daniele's ID. Hope you can update your spotting with the names now.
