3 patch ticks in one visit

Ticked off the lesser yellowlegs which is fairly mobile between wildfowlers and the flood. In the same scope shot I could see a ruff hobbling around and by moving my scope down a little, I got the wood sandpiper. This was spotted in the arm of wildfowlers pool which runs parallel with the cycle track. 3 black tailed godwits and about 20 snipe would have made the visit wortwhile even without these three birds. Hopefully the expected drop in temperature will slow down the rate water levels are falling and keep these birds in the area.
