Lovely Lancs Wader Lesser Yellowlegs
Lesser Yellowlegs is a rare vagrant to the UK from North America, so when one arrived near Lancaster in Lancashire birdwatchers were on there way! Amongst those that made the journey to see this lovely delicate rarity was our friend Brian Burnett, and his wife Helen. Brian is a keen photogragher and he took some cracking shots. Many thanks for sharing these brilliant pictures.
