An adult Lesser Yellowlegs was found at lunchtime today on the main RSPB reserve. It was feeding at the side of the reeds and easily seen from the main road. I watched it until 7pm tonight where it seemed to roost in the stubble reedbed to the east of the reserve. Whilst autumn birds are annual in Cornwall, records in Spring are decidedly rare. From memory, there have only been two or three Spring records and these come from the Camel Estuary.
