Today was the sixth consecutive day when we have spent at least some time searching the Tavira saltpans for the Greater Yellowlegs that was reported last Sunday.
And at last we got our reward...a Lesser Yellowlegs.
We saw it for just long enough to grab a few record shots before it took off with several Black-winged Stilts. Subsequent attempts to re-locate it were unsuccessful but no doubt it'll be hiding somewhere, waiting for anybody prepared to put the time in to look for it!
