Leg work...........

Got down to the Wildfowlers’ Pool for 08.15, had spare forty minutes to find something, saw Ruff and 11 Snipe, Canada Geese were roosting then flew. Second visit 11.15, Ruff was on the Flood, I then walked along river bank to Wildfowlers’ Pool, found Wood Sandpiper, Green Sandpiper flew in, and there was also Goldeneye, Redshank, Curlew, Lapwing, Little Grebe but no Lesser Yellowlegs. Other birders present said someone had paged it in this morning. Eventually another birder arrived saying the Lesser Yellowlegs was now on The Flood. It took a while to spot, then it flew a few yards with a handful of Redshank and then I could see the difference, initially I couldn’t see it amongst them. Also present were Curlew and Black-tailed Godwits.
