Lesser Yellowlegs @ RSPB Vange Marsh

Day off yesterday so I spent the morning at Vange Marsh, another hot and sunny day with a heat haze across the marsh which made viewing the distant waders tricky. There was a superb selection though with Black-tailed Godwit the most numerous 40+, Redshanks and 7 Spotted Redshanks, Green and Common Sandpipers, 5 Ruff and a Lesser Yellowlegs.
