Lesser Yellowlegs

I photographed this Lesser Yellowlegs at Aberlady Bay back in 2009. I’ve been lucky to see a few of these North American vagrants in the UK, but this one put on quite a show as it fed along the stream in front of me.

They are really special shorebirds, dainty and stunning. Their long yellow legs are very striking, especially in bright light.
