Well i was supposed to be working today but the job got called off for various reasons so i headed South to Lancashire and Aldcliffe Marsh's. There had be a Lesser Yellowlegs present for a couple of weeks. It took a while to find and eventually it showed in front of me on its usual pool just long enough for me to identify it before it flew to another pool. It was much more distant now and views were not good looking into the sun. The pics below i no are awful but i couldn't do anything else...

Whilst watching the lesserlegs, i could hear a Wood Sandpiper which eventually showed a little better than the lesserlegs, also a Green Sandpiper flew over calling, my first of the year finally. A Water Rail was calling from the undergrowth.

The Lesserlegs wasnt gonna come any closer so i decided to head back home. Still a couple of nice year ticks..
